View your medical records

Medical records hold information about you. They are sometimes called health records.

Your GP medical record includes:

  • past conditions
  • allergies
  • medication
  • test results
  • appointment notes and latters

You will have different records for other NHS services you’ve used, including hospitals, dentists and opticians. To access these records, you’ll need to contact the relevant service.

Using the NHS app or website

You can view your GP medical record online using your NHS account.

You will need the NHS app or your NHS account login details.


You may need to ask the surgery for access to view your medical records in your NHS account. You’ll only need to do this once.
