About 'Health for Me'

Health for Me is not compulsory, nor is it suitable for everyone - you can choose not to sign up for Health for Me, and this will not affect your medical care in any way.

The aims of Health for Me are to:

  • make it easier to find information about your care
  • provide one location for most of your hospital records
  • enable you to check your appointments
  • offer access to your hospital letters in digital format
  • allow your medical team to share information with you.

International and local research on patients' experience of similar portals has shown that:

  • they help patients feel more in control and better informed
  • patients prefer to find out test results from home rather than at hospital
  • they help patients educate themselves about their condition
  • they can improve the quality of appointments with a doctor, for example if information has been shared between you beforehand
  • they can drive improvements to hospital services.

Health for Me is not a replacement for any appointments or communications with our service.


You can access Health for Me on a computer, tablet or smartphone using the following browers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and higher
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Apple Safari for Apple Mac
  • Mobile Safari.

You may also need a PDF reader to view some documents.

Access is for the individual patient only, with identity checks when they sign up. They will need to choose a secure password.

Family members are currently not permitted access to a patient's record, but we are planning to develop a secure method to allow access for nominated representatives where this becomes necessary.


Health for Me is protected by similar security to internet banking and patients have their own login details and security questions. Please ensure you log out every time you leave Health for Me, and do not share your login information.


Deleting Health for Me

Patients can contact Health for Me Support to ask for their account to be deleted.
