How to get access to your Online Access Medical Records
The GP Electronic Health Record Viewing System, allows KCPCC to provide patients with a facility to view from 'todays date' your GP medical record securely over the internet from a computer - free of charge. The service is completely voluntary to the patient. If you do not want to use it, your treatment will not be affected in any way. Ask at our reception for more details of this service.
What are the advantages for me?
What information will I be able to see?
The system allows you to view the following areas of your GP medical record from ‘todays date’:
• Allergies and any bad reactions to medications• Vaccinations and immunisations• Medications
Are there any risks for me?
There may be something in your record that you have forgotten and do not want to be reminded about.
Can I alter the record?
If you think that information in your health records is incorrect or your need to update your personal details (name, address, phone number), approach the reception desk and ask for more information. All requests will need to be put in writing.
GP practices may not be able to the content of any historic consultations, if the practice is unable to do so, than they will notify you. If your request to have your records amended is refused, the record holder (GP) must attach a statement of your views to the record. If you are still dissatisfied, you can complain to the Information Commissioner (the person responsible for regulating and enforcing the Data Protection Act), at:
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO)Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AFTelephone: 01625 545745
Can I share the record?
You will be given secure log in details to access your record. You should keep these safe and not share with anyone. However if you want to share your record with other health professionals or people caring for you, including family and friends, you can print off details or show them the record online by logging on to any internet connected PC. If you do print information from your record you must make sure you dispose of it securely.
What about security?
Your information remains under the control of your GP as it does now. Like online banking you control viewing by using your Username and password. You will be responsible for keeping your log in details safe.
Logging off or a power failure will clear all the information accessed online from your computer system. Only the surgery permanently holds your information. You are advised not to copy information to your own computer but to log on to the secure site each time to wish to access information as it will be up to date and secure. Information may be printed and shared as you wish, but please ensure any paper copies are kept secure and disposed of securely when no longer required.
Will my data be passed to anyone else without my permission?
No. The Data Protection Act states that your personal data can only be shared with your permission. Please see the Information Commissioners Office web-site for further information: http://www.ico.gov.uk
How do I get started?
Please note: Under the Data Protection Act 1998, you have a legal right to apply for access to health information held about you. If you require access to historic information, please apply in writing to the Practice Manager (this is known as a Subject Access Request). There may be a charge for this.
Please contact the surgery to request a Travel Information Form. You will need to complete this form and hand in at Reception. The Practice Nurse will then process this form to see which vaccinations are required. We will then contact you to arrange an appointment with the Practice Nurse for any vaccinations to be given.
A charge of £25 per person is required when the completed form is returned to reception.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
