GP Connect Access Record: HTML - FHIR API

View a patient's GP practice record, with read-only access.


Use this API to view a patient's registered GP practice record, with read-only access.

You can:

  • view a patient’s primary care record by requesting sections or headings
  • define a date range to filter larger sections
  • incorporate these views directly into Electronic Patient Record systems

For example:

  • GP practices can view all of the patient’s primary care records even when they are held on a different GP system
  • care settings such as NHS111, Physio, Community, Emergency, or Social Care can view the records held by the patient’s GP practice to better inform any care decisions they make for a patient

For more details, see the GP Connect specifications for developers.
