Access to Medical Records

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 Disclosure Team.  Maximum charges are set down by law. The Data Protection Act 2018 came into effect on 25th May 2018.  When this regulation is introduced there will be no charge for these requests except in specific circumstances, such as if the requests are manifestly unfounded, excessive or if it is a request for further copies.

You can get more information from:
