Please browse these pages if you are interested in finding out more about the benefits of accessing your Health Record online
Patient Access to Health Records is a service provided completely free of charge by your Practice
Haughton Thornley has pioneered individual access to GP held health records over the internet since 2004 and well over 10,000 hundred patients have now accessed their record
The majority of patients who access their record do so more than once
Some patients like to access their record out of curiosity, just to check that everything recorded is correct
Whilst accessing your record over the internet is straightforward, you can ask at any time to see your record and can request a full print out that you can take away with you.
If you are one of our patients and wish to register to access your health record or other online services.
We have provided information on the benefits of Record Access and have included a frequently asked questions (FAQ) section that deals with some of the questions you might have particularly about privacy and security as well as the consent process that we have adopted. In other sections of this website, you will also find articles and support material written by some of our patients.
Non-urgent advice: Please note
To take advantage of online services available at Haughton Vale and Thornley House Practices, you must first be a registered patient at one of the Practices and have previously registered to access online services – please ask at reception, speak to your GP or Nurse and they will be able to help you. You can register for online access here.
Your Practice has been offering a range of online services for patients for some time now, including the ability to securely and confidentially access your GP-held electronic health record once you have been registered to use the service.
Mrs Margaret Rickson – a patient at Thornley House surgery was one of our first patients to take advantage of this facility and during an interview with the Manchester Evening News, she explained how this has helped her to manage her own health. The full range of online services now offered includes:
– Any repeat prescriptions you have can now be requested via the internet
If you receive medication which is on repeat prescription, in most instances you can now order the prescription through the internet without having to ring or visit the surgery. Once ordered you can then review the system to check when it is ready to be collected. You can also collect prescriptions directly from your local pharmacist without having to visit the practice.
Dr Amir Hannan has also been one of the pioneers of on-line access to GP-held health records for patients, based on what he describes as the ‘partnership of trust‘. This trust relationship allows patients greater access to information about their health and medical care. If you would like to be one of a growing number of our patients who have taken advantage of this initiative, please complete the online questionnaire.
The internet is not a replacement for getting first hand advice and help with your health from your trusted doctor or nurse but may help you to be more informed about managing your own health better.
