Consent for Proxy Access to GP Online Services

A proxy user is a user that is allowed to process medical requests on behalf of another patient.

If you wish for another online user to have access to your records or grant them permission to speak to Woodseats Medical Centre on your behalf  for things such as such as requesting prescriptions, booking appointments and accessing your medical records and information then you will need to set up this person as a ‘proxy user’.

  • If you have a child under the age of 12 you can request proxy access to your child’s medical records. When your child reaches 12 years old the proxy access will be reduced to only allow you to make appointments on their behalf and repeat prescription requests. Your child will then need to give consent for any further information to be shared. At the age of 16 proxy access will cease unless your child does not have capacity to manage their own healthcare
  • If the patient does not have capacity to confirm proxy access then the access will be forwarded for approval by the GP
  • Proxy application will not be accepted from third party organisations such as insurance company or solicitors.

Please ensure you have carefully read the NHS Proxy Access Guide prior to applying.
