What is the Online EHR Viewing System?

The system is a website that allows you to view your medical record over the internet. It allows you to easily and quickly view the electronic medical information held about you by your GP Practice.

The information is presented to you in a format that is easy to navigate and offers you links to resources such as patient information leaflets about diseases, tests, investigations, support groups and medications etc.


Registering and consenting to use the EHR Viewing system

To be able to use the system you must be able to access the internet via a PC, Tablet or Smartphone.

You have to collect your PIN NUMBERS from the receptionist and REGISTER on-line. You also need to complete an ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE. We will then process your request and then contact you to confirm your access and complete the consent process.

Any data held by the practice concerning you is subject to the regulations laid down in the Data Protection Act (1998). The consent is between you and your GP Practice.

How do I use the Online EHR Viewing System?

Once you have registered and signed a consent form to access the system, from your PC web browser enter the web address www.htmc.co.uk and follow the instructions to sign up for and begin using EMIS access.

Once you have signed into EMIS Access you must select the ‘View Medical Record’ section which will further prompt you to enter the password specifically assigned to allow you to view your online EHR.

When you have been correctly identified the system will allow you to view the parts of your medical record as described below. Use the menu and links to view each area of your medical record. There is an online help section to help you use the system.

What can I see on the Online EHR viewing system?

The system allows you to view the following areas of your medical record:

A summary that gives you the most important and recent entries in your health record.

Consultations including: date, practitioner seen, reason for visit, history, examination, outcome, investigations, etc.

Medical Record showing diagnoses, investigations, and procedures


Patient Information Leaflets linked from the diagnoses in the medical record section.

Results showing all investigations such as blood results, liver tests, blood pressure etc.



Letters to and from the GP.

The system also allows you to send messages to your practice using a system in EMIS Access.

Why have an Online EHR viewing system?

There are many reasons to provide you with access to your medical information. A few of them are listed below:

‘We want to develop a culture of openness, honesty and trust; to ensure that patients have the information they need to make informed choices; and to enable patients to become equal partners with health care professionals in making decisions about treatment and care.’

This is the response to the Department of Health from the enquiry into the Bristol Royal Infirmary Enquiry.

REMEMBER - To protect your privacy, as with all password protected applications on the internet, logout of the system when you are finished.
