Is there an age limit to request Patient Online?
As yet there is no guidance on how to protect children and the systems are not sophisticated enough to turn on and off as the child ages, we have decided not to allow online access to patients under the age of 16 years. At this age, we will grant access at the request of the individual.
First Level Access –Access will be granted for patients aged 16 and above.
Second & Third Level Access – Access will be granted for patients aged 18 and above.
