Aged 14 to under 16?
Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GPDR) introduced in May 2018, Alchester Medical Group is now required to have consent from all patients aged 14 to 16 years of age to access their online medical record (Patient Online or Patient Access).
If you have an online account with us, you need to fill in a new Patient Online patient access registration form declaring what type of access you would like going forward:
1. You can have your own access
2. You can give your parent/guardian permission to have access
If you would like your own access, please complete and sign the online registration request form, bring it in to the surgery with proof of your ID (passport, photo identity card).
If you would rather your parent/guardian have access to your account please complete the online patient access registration form, filling in who you would like to have access to your records. Please remember to sign it before bringing to back to us!
Once you have brought the registration document back to us, we can reactivate your account.
Please note: you will be sent a letter regarding this when you turn 14 only if you already have an online Patient Access account. If you don't re-register your online account after that, then your account will be disabled. You can re-register at any time.
For patients who don't currently have an online Patient Access account and would like one, or would like their parents to have access to their medical record, please fill in our online patient access registration form & have a read of our Patient Online FAQ leaflet - and this along with bring some form of ID into the surgery.
When you turn 16 years old, the Patient Access system will automatically stop your access and you will have to come in and re-register again.
