ACCESS TO HEALTH RECORDS
The Data Protection Act 1998 now allows access to medical records of living patients. All applications for access to records whether paper based or electronic are now made under the Data Protection Act 1998. To have access to your medical records, you must apply in writing to the Practice Secretary who on receipt of your request will respond to you within 21 days.
Please note there may be a charge of £10.00 for copies of electronic health records and for copies of manual and electronic records a charge of £50.00 is applied.
We will process applications for access received from patients, the parent/guardian of a child, a personal representative of a deceased patient or a person appointed to look after the affairs of a patient incapable of doing so personally.
