Access to medical records

As a Practice we take care to ensure that information about you is not disclosed to anyone who is unauthorised to see it. Since the introduction of the Data Protection Act, patients have the right to apply for access to their health records, provided that a written application is made (forms are available at reception) and the appropriate fee has been paid (this could be up to £50).

The patient’s GP will decide if it is in the patient’s interest before releasing any information. If your GP agrees to this, you will be allowed to view your records in the presence of your doctor or a member of our Patient Services Team.

Patients who have internet access can also view certain aspects of their medical record online. Please ask the receptionist for more details.
