MyChart is a new app and online service that makes accessing your health record easier.
MyChart allows you to access a patient’s health record securely and easily on your mobile, tablet or computer. With MyChart, you will be able to:
- find test results and letters in one, easy place
- get more time in appointments by telling us what we need to know beforehand
- save time travelling by having a video appointment
- keep medical information up to date
- share your or your child's health record with your GP
How to access MyChart
Please speak to your child's healthcare team about accessing MyChart at their next appointment. You'll need to speak to your child's healthcare team to sign up to MyChart and to request proxy access, if you need it.
For children and young people under 18, proxy access is managed by their healthcare team who will consider their needs, wishes and best interests.
Proxy access will not routinely let you view information about:
- sexual and reproductive health
- termination of pregnancy (abortion)
- gender identity development services
There might also be information marked as 'sensitive' by a clinician, such as psychology notes, which will not be visible in MyChart at all. This means neither you nor anyone with proxy access will see any information marked as sensitive.
Activating proxy access
12 years old and younger
Children aged 12 or younger cannot have their own MyChart login.
Parents or guardians who want to use MyChart to keep up to date with their child’s care can use proxy access.
Speak to your child's healthcare team to request proxy access to your child's health record.
13 to 18 years old
Young people aged 13 to 18 can ask for their own MyChart login.
Parents or guardians may have proxy access to your MyChart health record until the age of 18.
Please speak to your healthcare team at your next appointment to ask for an account or to request proxy access.
Removing proxy access
Proxy access is managed by your child's healthcare team who will consider their needs, wishes and best interests.
13 to 18 years old
If you want to stop someone seeing your MyChart information, or change who has proxy access, please speak to the healthcare team looking after you. The healthcare team will decide based on your needs, wishes, and best interests.
Anyone with proxy access to your MyChart health record will be removed when you are 18. Sometimes proxy access may stay in place if there are ongoing care needs.
