Accessing your own record

Patient Online

Your Care Connected does not allow patients to access their own records. This is because providing patients’ access to their own record is part of the national ‘Patient Online’ initiative being implemented by NHS England.

Patient Online is designed to support GP practices in offering and promoting online services to patients, including access to records, online appointment booking and online repeat prescriptions.

Patient Online provides patients with a greater level of detail than is contained in the snapshot of a patient record used by Your Care Connected, so has superseded the necessity of having a Your Care Connected patient portal.

We encourage all patients that wish to have access to their own records to speak to their practice about Patient Online.
