Collection of GP Data NHS Digital released a statement last month regarding the launch of the new system they will be using to collect GP data, called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service. The statement highlights that NHS Digital will only share data with organisations who have a legal basis and meet strict criteria to use it for local, regional and national planning, policy development, commissioning, public health and research purposes. They have also developed a public advice webpage to explain how and why the data is being used.

Online Proxy Access

Online access to medical records offers a modern, convenient and responsive primary care service available to all registered patients and some like to give someone else access to their online account. This may be a family member, a close friend, carer or Power of Attorney for health and welfare, who can use it to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, manage healthcare or access online applications such as the NHS App on their behalf, this is known as proxy access.


At Freshwell Health Centre we ensure the medical data of all our patients is kept safe and secure, access to records will only be granted both to the patient or their proxy once the correct checks have been made in line with current guidelines from both NHS England and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

If you would like someone else to have access to your online record or are the parent of a young person that needs access to help manage their health, please download the appropriate policy and form below and follow the instructions.
