Access to records

Access to records by Practice staff & NHS employees / associates

All Practice staff have access to medical records as required by their role: GPs, Practice Nurse, health care assistant (HCA), locum doctors, receptionists, Practice Manager, IM&T Manager, scanning clerks & summarising clerk

The Practice also allows NHS staff, who work with the Practice in providing your care, access to records. These include pharmacists (who assist the doctors by performing tasks such as reviewing patient medications), health visitors, district nurses & midwives

Due to the fact that the Practice's patient records are computerised, and the Practice uses computerised NHS systems, the Practice does on occasions encounter technical problems
Where the problem is within specific patient records, access may be granted for the purpose of correcting the problem; records cannot be added, changed, deleted, copied or removed from the Practice
Where possible, the work is supervised by the IM&T Manager

On the occasions where an NHS employee / associate has access to patient records in order to assist the Practice, the relevant party will have signed a confidentiality agreement
