This form is specifically for children living at a different address to the parent/carer requesting access, or where the parent/carer is not a registered patient at this surgery
The proxy does not have to be a registered patient at the practice, but must be registered for online services on the GP system and always use their own login credentials.
On a child’s 11th birthday, the scope of the current proxy access will be restricted, unless the GP has already assessed the child as able to make an informed decision and the child has given explicit consent for their record to be shared. This is a national standard imposed by NHS England to protect the confidentiality rights of young people. We will send a letter to the child and to their parent/legal guardian on their 11th birthday to inform them of this change.
