Could this girl find out my sexual history? Watch

    Hello all,

    I went out with someone who works for the NHS and has access to the NHS records system. She half heartedly joked that if she knew my NHS number, she could access my records. It's was a bit of banter.

    Would she able to see my STD test results and etc? They are all negative btw, but I don't feel comfortable about that one bit! Theoretically, could she do that?!

    She could find out if you tell her, because you should before you start making moves.

    If she did, and was caught, she'd probably be fired.

    But this is why many people don't give their 'real' details when using sexual health services.

    Hmmm, I was under the impression that STD clinics used a system independent from my GP's record system. For example, I don't remember ever giving them by NHS number or NI number to identify myself.

    I think I'm going to ask for a copy to see what's actually on there.

    Historically, there has been a separation of records. But there's been a move to end that and I am not sure how far it's got.
