Your medical records and you

Sarum House Surgery has a policy of openness with regard to health records and health professionals are encouraged to allow patients access to their health records on an informal basis.  This should be recorded in the health record itself. 


If you would like to access your health record, then please complete and return the form, along with the appropriate fee.  Further information can be found in the leaflet or by calling the practice.

Online access

Sarum House Surgery already offers patients the facility to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and send secure non-urgent messages to the practice using Patient Access.  The practice is also working towards giving patients access to their summary records.  When this is available, patients registered for online access will also be able to view online, export and print any summary information from their records relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions.  Other parts of the record may also be made available, following discussions with the doctors. 


The practice timetable for making this information available is:



By When

Summary Care Record - Statement of Intent  

It is important that your medical record is available when and where you need it.


You may feel, especially if you have an extensive medical history, that it is very important for some of your medical information to be available if you were on holiday away from the practice area and taken ill and ended up in hospital.  Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record.  They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.


The system in use at Sarum House Surgery means that your SCR is automatically updated, on at least a daily basis, to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.


Of course, if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way, then please contact us so that we can update your record.  



Your medical records when leaving the practice.  (GP2GP)

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area.  Once you have registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.


NHS England requires all practices to use electronic transfer of patient records (GP2GP) between practices when a patient registers or de-registers from our Practice or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31st of March 2015.


Sarum House Surgery already uses GP2GP for all patient record transfers, unless there is an issue with the receiving practice’s computer system that does not allow the transfer.  This means that your electronic medical record will be available to them as soon as they register you at the practice.
