Age of Access for Online Services:
The practice offers "no online services" to patients aged between 11 and 16 years. NHS England recommends that practices adopt a very cautious approach to allowing parents access to their child's medical record once the child reaches the age of 11, especially in light of the extended access to medical records in 2015.
Children vary in the age at which they are able to make an independent and informed decision about who should have access to their record. Eastgate Medical Group has decided to adopt the most practical approach and withdraw parents' access as soon as the child reaches 11, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The practice understands that, in some extreme circumstances, access to a child's record may be required. If you think this applies to your child, please contact the surgery in writing with the details.
