Access to medical records

The practice is registered and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any request for access to notes will be dealt with in accordance with the Act. You (or your representative with your written permission) are entitled to a single copy of your medical records, subject to the provisions of the Act. There is a charge of £50 for this, payable in advance. Please note that further copies will be charged at full commercial rates, i.e. more expensive. We therefore advise that if you request a copy of your records, you make and keep a photocopy of it before passing it on to anyone else such as a solicitor or insurance company
