Consent for Proxy Access to GP Online Services
If you would like to request proxy access to GP online services, please speak to a member of the Reception Team.
A proxy user is a user that is allowed to view and process medical requests on behalf of another patient.
You can only be set up as a proxy access user if you have a registered account with online services.
If you wish for another online user to have access to your records and be able to complete tasks on your behalf such as requesting prescriptions, booking appointments and accessing your medical records and information then you will need to set up this person as a ‘proxy user’.
- If you have a child under the age of 12 you can request proxy access to your child’s medical records. When your child reaches 12 years old, proxy access is automatically switched off. A new application would then need to be submitted.
- If the patient does not have capacity to confirm proxy access then the access will be forwarded for approval by the GP.
- For people aged 16 years and older they can request direct online access to their medical records themselves and will have responsibility for protecting their own registration details and password.
- Proxy application will not be accepted from third party organisations such as insurance company or solicitors.
Please ensure you have carefully read the NHS Proxy Access Guide prior to applying.
