Access to Medical Records


An application for access to a medical record may be made by:

 

  • The Patient
  • A person authorised in writing to make the application (such as a solicitor or insurance company)
  • A person having parental responsibility for a child:  any person appointed by a court to manage the patient affairs.
  • Where a patient is desceased the patient's next of kin or authorised representative.

We will always ensure that we have the patients informed consent to release copies of medical records and on occasion we may write to a patient to confirm that they are fully aware of what informaton they have consented to be released.  This will generally apply in situations where we get requests from solicitors.

 

Patients details are held in writing and also on computer.  We are registered under the Data Protection Act.  

  

Please contact the Practice Manager if you have any questions regarding access or if you wish to arrange access to records.
