Obtaining access to your medical records
In 1990 a law (Access to Health Records Act) was passed giving patients the right to access their own medical records created after 1/11/1991. This was reinforced by the provisions within the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you wish to either view your medical record or receive copies of your medical record, please download and read the attached document.
You need to complete the application form and submit it, with the appropriate fee, to reception.
The act requires that a doctor review your records before they are released to you.
