Accessing your medical records

It is possible to obtain access to your medical records that are kept by a GP, optician, dentist or hospital trust.

GP online services

If you are registered with a GP surgery, you can access online services. Online services may allow you to:

  • book, check or cancel appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional
  • order repeat prescriptions
  • see parts of your health record, including information about medicines, vaccinations and test results
  • see communications between your GP surgery and other services, such as hospitals

You can download the NHS App and sign in to access your GP medical record securely. More information can be found here:

In Person

If you would prefer to view your medical records in person, you can make an informal request during a consultation or by phoning your GP surgery or hospital to arrange a time to see them. Accessing them is free, and healthcare professionals have a legal requirement to allow you to see them.

Obtaining a Copy of Your Medical Record

Copies of records are supplied only if a formal application for access to the records has been made.

The NHS website provides information about accessing someone else’s medical records and how to access the medical records of a deceased person.
