From 1st April 2016 all practices were required to offer patients the opportunity to view medical records on-line. We had this facility with our previous clinical software supplier but having moved to EMIS are in the process of revising how this is achieved. However, anyone new wishing for on-line access must first complete a questionnaire APPLICATION FORM FROM PRACTICE and bring two evidences for identification, one with a photograph such as passport or driving licence and one household bill for proof of address. Those who have previously applied will need to re-register with the new system to update e-mails and contact numbers but will not need to represent their proofs of identity. This availability is now in operation. An alternative method is via the NHS APP www.nhs.uk/nhs-app Any patient wishing to print a "Covid vaccination passport" will be able to do so by either method - the surgery will not be able to provide "passports"
