Access To Medical Records

Under the Data Protection Act 2018 you have the right to see any files about you, including your health records.

You can see the computer health records that we hold for you by using the free, secure NHS App. For more information on safely accessing your medical records, please visit GP health record.

If you want copies of your paper records you need to apply for this and verify your identity. If you would like further information please use this form Medical Report Request. This process can take up to a month.

The Data Protection Act only applies to living persons. If you believe you have a good reason to apply to see the records of a deceased person this may be possible under the Access to Health Records Act 1990. To enquire about this please contact reception.
