Access to medical records

Personal Access

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to view or have a copy of any personal information held in your medical records.

If you want to view your medical records please forward your request to the Practice Manager.

If you choose to view your medical records at the surgery you will be accompanied while you view your records. If you want copies of any part of your medical records please forward your request to the Practice Manager. A copy of your medical records will be supplied for which there may be a nominal charge for more than 15 sheets. If there is a charge you will be notified before a copy of your records is produced.

Third Party Access

If you consent for a third party, such as a solicitor or insurance company, to see any part of your medical records they will need to apply in writing to the practice. Payment will be requested before any records are released.
