Access your medical records

How to get your medical records

You can use the NHS App or log in through the NHS website to access your GP health record. This is a record of your personal health information. It may include details about your health conditions and treatments you've had.

Important:Protecting your privacy
Your record may contain sensitive information. If someone is pressuring you for this information, contact your GP surgery immediately.
You can speak to your surgery if you would rather not have access to your health record in your NHS App.

Asking for a more detailed record
If you have access to your GP health record, you will be able to see your summary record as a minimum. This contains information about your medicines and allergies.

Most people will automatically be given access to more information added to their more detailed GP record from November 2023 onwards. This includes letters, test results and appointment notes. Some people may also have access to information added to their GP record before this date.

If you only have access to your summary record, you’ll see a message letting you know that you can request access to more information. You can contact your GP surgery and request access to your detailed coded record.

Using your NHS account

You can get your GP record by logging into your account using the NHS app or NHS website.
First, you need to register for online services and prove who you are. You can do this when you create an account.
You'll need to ask your GP surgery for online access to your full record, or you'll only see your medicines and allergies.
