From this week (w/c 15 May), patients at Barts Health can access their health record online through a portal called Patients Know Best.
Once you sign up, you will be able to see your personal information and check upcoming hospital appointments from any device. Over the next few months, more features will be added including the ability to see hospital letters, scan results and blood tests.
Patients know best is free, easy-to-use, and hosted within the secure NHS network. This means that all personal and health information is encrypted so that you as a patient, and the people you choose, can access your health information.
You will still receive letters and texts from us in the usual way, but this portal will give you more control of your health record.
