View your medical record

Certain services, such as viewing your medical record, nominating a pharmacy, changing contact details and messaging, are only available to practices in England and certain parts of Northern Ireland at this time. Your practice decides which of the available services they make available to their patients.

If you have medical record enabled, there will be a medical record section on the Patient Access dashboard once you've signed in. To view your medical record, simply select Medical Record from the dashboard to expand the selection, then select the area you would like to view.

Depending on what your practice have enabled you may be able to see your:

  • Problems
  • Medications
  • Test results
  • Documents
  • Consultations
  • Immunisations
  • Allergies

What you see and do on Patient Access is controlled by your practice and they decide which areas of your medical record you can see. If you'd like to see more of your medical record, speak to your practice about this.

COVID-19 Vaccination Card

If you are a patient in England, you will be able to access your COVID-19 vaccination information from the Immunisation section of your Medical Record. Read more about the COVID-19 Vaccination Card here.

For any information to be displayed, you must have had at least one dose of the vaccine. COVID-19 vaccination information will only be displayed if you have access to your medication and immunisations.
