In Somerset NHS providers, such as Musgrove Park Hospital and the Out of Hours Service will shortly have ‘view only’ access to GP surgery records.

This is only used for direct patient care – either with the patients consent, or in their best interest if they are not able to give consent. This enables the Doctors to be able to provide you with the best care possible as they can see your medical history and current treatment and plans. The system is tightly controlled, has a full audit-trail and does not permit any downloads.

If you do NOT want us to allow this, we can enter a READcode (93C1) that prevents access to your information. If you would like us to block access to your record for this purpose, please sign below write to us and we will enter the code onto your record.
