Subject Access Request
Occasionally patients may request a copy of their medical records. In accordance with the General Data Protection Act 2018, any patient is entitled to receive a copy of their medical records.
We would ask that such requests are made via the application form below which you should returnto the surgery.
The surgery will respond to requests within thirty days of receiving them.
A patient may not be granted access to their medical records if the GP or Health Professional involved believes that any information held within the records is likely to cause serious harm to the patient or any other person.
If there are details regarding a third party within the medical records these can be removed prior to release. When notes are copied they will be checked thoroughly by the GP.
When the medical records leave the practice they are the sole responsibility of the patient. They must ensure they keep all their personal information in a safe place as the practice will not be liable if any items are lost or stolen.
