- The practice team will keep your medical records confidential.
- If you wish to see your medical records you must consult the practice manager. You have a right of access to medical records made since 1st November 1991 under the Access to Health Records Act 1990. (A fee may be charged if you wish to have a copy of the record.)
- The practice manager, in consultation with the doctor, will also consider extending permission for you to see records made before November 1991. You should ensure that, where you are given medical records such as the ‘Personal Child Health Record’ for children born since April 1992, or maternity records, you keep these safe and make them available to your practitioners whenever they are needed.
- We will return reports for non-medical bodies (solicitors, insurance companies etc) within three working weeks, unless greater urgency is stressed. Our medical work takes priority.
