What is Online Access?
With Online Access, you can now view, book and cancel appointments from home, work or on the move – wherever you can connect to the internet. What’s more, because Online Access is a 24 hour online service – you can do this in your own time, day or night.

Online access for Children and Young People
Parents of children aged 0 to 11 can be given “proxy” access to their child’s medical details and other online services. This is automatically given to the mother unless you request otherwise. This allows you to view the child's medcial record online.
From age 11 to 16 a parent has to request this “proxy” access to be continued, with the child’s consent. Please use form 11-16 Child Proxy Consent Form
There is also a letter explaining Proxy Access, Proxy Access for Parents Letter.
At 16 any proxy access is automatically removed.
Should a child over 16 wish to give consent for proxy access please use form Proxy Consent Letter for 16 and Over.
If you did not want online access then for any child aged 11 to 16 and with the child's permission we can be authorised to speak with you. Please use this form
