The doctor and team of health professionals caring for you keep records about your health and any treatment and care you receive from the NHS. These records help to make sure you receive the best possible care. The records may include
· Basic details about you, such as address and next of kin.
· Details of your ongoing care.
· Information about past hospital appointments and admissions.
· Results of investigations such as x-rays and laboratory tests.
You have the right to apply to see, or have a copy, of your health records. This can be arranged through our Legal Department. Maximum charges are set down by law. You can get more information from:
