in reply to Helvella from a post a last night. The above NHS website - nhs.uk - gives you the opportunity to register on the site, filling in personal details - don't forget to keep a note of your password and user name (not just your email address, because your personal page will use your user name, same as on here. No pics or emojis needed.
Once registered 'your' page, will then have several tabs I.e.
Local Services details of your nearest doctor, chemist etc / Your Interests / Personal Details / Your Pages / Account Details.
In other words you can make and keep your own medical records! On the Nhsuk website you can also, at a cost, find the Information from medical records the NHS already holds for you.
Elsewhere on the site it is also possible to research a deceased direct line relatives health record - parent, child.
This facility does not apply, to me in respect of my father, because he was born and died in Scotland, although most of his working life spent in England, so it only applies to England and Wales ? N Ireland records.
I'd be grateful if someone from Scotland could tell me if NHS Scotland has started a similiar scheme or if there is a specific SHS website worth looking at. Thanks in anticipation.
A 2nd website, useful for TUK specifically, not individual patients, may be crd.york.ac.uk Again it's necessary to register with them.
Happy hunting all!
