What can I see in My Medical Record?

Note - This functionality is only available if your GP Surgery has enabled it and is currently only available in England.

In order for you to view your coded medical record, three levels of consent must be met:

  • Practice Level - Your GP practice must have Detailed Coded Records (DCR) enabled
  • Patient Level - You must request access to your detail coded record from your GP practice
  • GP Level - Your GP has to review your request and enable you access

Please contact your GP practice with regards to consent recording.

Once all three levels of consent have been met, My Medical Record is available and can consist of any or all of the following (depending on your GP surgery choices):

  • Medication - A list of all of your medication that have been issued, either on repeat prescription or as a one off (acute)
  • Diagnosis - A list of your medical diagnosis
  • Event History - A list of your practice consultation dates, details of referrals for further care, hospital admissions and details of any future review dates with your surgery
  • Examination Findings - A list of examination findings including blood pressure, height, weight, smoking and alcohol
  • Problems - A section defined by your GP surgery, if this option is enabled please check with your surgery for details of this category
  • Risks and Warnings - A list of any drug or food allergies or intolerances you may have, for example allergic to penicillin causing severe side effects or an intolerance to Ibuprofen that gives you an upset stomach
  • Procedures - A list of operations and injections, for example childhood vaccinations, travel vaccinations and flu jab
  • Investigations - A list of tests and results, for example blood tests, smears, urine, swabs. Where additional information is available, there is a link to Lab Tests Online from within the Investigations screen. Lab Test Online is a website that may help you understand the tests that are displayed on your record, simply click on the link to view the information available. Remember this is about the test, not your result.
Note - Your surgery may not have reviewed these results. For information regarding what your results mean please contact your surgery in the usual way
