Accessing your health record

Your health record includes information like any conditions or allergies you have and any medicine you’re taking.

Most patients will automatically have access to more information added to their health record. This includes letters, test results and appointment notes.

You can access your health record and nominate someone you trust to access it too.

You can use your NHS account (through the NHS website or NHS App) or Patient Access to access your health record.

You’ll need to ask the surgery for online access to your full health record, or you’ll only see your medicines and allergies.

Alternatively, please print out and complete the below form, to bring in to reception:

Request access to your full health record online

First, you need to register for online services and prove who you are. To request access:

  • visit the surgery with photo ID so we can confirm your identity
  • if you are setting up access for the first time, we will give you a username and password
  • go to Patient Access or the app for access

All patients are able to view their prescriptions, lab results and summary of medical records online via the NHS app or patient access. In most cases, documents are also visible.

If any of your details i.e. email address or telephone number that we have on our records are different/incorrect, the registration will not work, you will need to either contact the surgery and speak to registrations, or alternatively fill in the form below to enable us to update your details.

Please note this service is currently only available to patients 16 years and over.

Please contact the medical centre registrations team on Market Harborough Medical Centre 01858 464242 or St Luke’s Branch Surgery 01858 464242 or Husbands Bosworth Medical Centre 01858 880522 if you are having any problems getting online or do not have a smartphone.

Access to other medical records

For any other medical records, you need to ask for them at the NHS service you went to. This includes records like your hospital record.
