Patient health records go online
The portal will allow patients access to records via the internet
A scheme which gives patients access to their own health records over the internet is being piloted at two GP practices in Ayrshire.
The Patient Portal allows doctors appointments and repeat prescriptions to be booked through a secure website.
It also lets patients access their own test results, and track and monitor blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
If the £175,000 six-month trial is successful, it could be extended across the country.
The Patient Portal is being trialled at Townhead Surgery in Irvine and the Kilwinning Medical Practice.
