Access to your medical records
You are able to request access to your medical records. This can be done either by attending the practice and viewing your computerised records on screen (the majority of your records will be computerised) and your old paper records. A charge is made for this and you will need to be accompanied by a member of staff when accessing your records.
Copies of your records
In addition, you can request copies of your records. We can supply these on an encrypted CD, if you wish to have electronic copies, or on paper, provided that you collect the paper copies in person. We are not able to post paper copies to you. A charge will be made for this service depending on the volume of your records. Please refer to the fees attached to the non NHS services tab.
A leaflet is attached setting the terms and conditions of this service and an application form is also attached for you to request access.
Once you have made your request, we will deal with it within 21 days. There is no facility for immediate access, however we will try to accommodate any urgent requests.
