ACCESS TO HEALTH RECORDS

Access to Records

From 1st April 2020, GP practices must offer all patients online access to all prospective data on their patient record unless exceptional circumstances apply. In addition, GP practices will make online access to the full historic digital record available to patients on request. To request your medical records before 1st April 2020, please complete the attached form and return it to the surgery in person with one form of photographic ID

 

Can I access someone else's medical records?

Health records are confidential so you can only access someone else's records if you are authorised to do so.

To access someone else's health records, you must:

  • be acting on their behalf with their consent, or
  • have legal authority to make decisions on their behalf (power of attorney), or
  • have another legal basis for access

For further information see the NHS.uk - Access to someone else's medical or health records advice page.

 

If you wish to to allow surgery staff to speak to another person/s on your behalf please visit Reception.
