From 1st April 2015 the Government have asked all practices to ensure that patients be given the option to view their medical records electronically. Swanlow Medical Centre has been giving patients access to certain aspects of their records for over 5 years i.e. you have been able to book appointments and order your prescriptions on line. From 1st April we are taking this service further to allow you to view your medical records from the comfort of your own home.
The process is a three step process:
1) you register yourself for an online account via this website from the home screen
2) you come to the surgery with one photo ID and one other form of ID with your full name and address on e.g. utility bill, this is to ensure that we are giving access to the appropriate person.
3) we will activate your account once we are happy you are who you say you are and you have read and understood the rules around on line access.
If you would like to read and sign the below form and bring it to the surgery when you bring your ID this would save time at the reception desk.
