  • In some circumstances we will also share medical records for medical research, for example to find out more about why people get ill.

  • You have the right to be given a copy of your medical record (see below)
  • You have the right to object to your medical records being shared with those who provide you with care.
  • You have the right to object to your information being used for medical research and to plan health services.

Your right to see your health records

A health record is any record of information relating to someone's physical or mentalhealth that has been made by (or on behalf of) a health professional. This could be anything from the notes made by a GP in your local surgery to results of an MRI scan or X-rays.

Health records are extremely personal and sensitive. They can be held electronically or as paper files, and are kept by a range of different health professionals both in the NHS and the private sector.


How can I access my records?

This is known as a subject access request (SAR).

To do so, you will need to make your request in writing by completing a form which is available from reception.

You do not have to give a reason for applying for access to your health records,however, to save time and resources, it would be helpful if you would inform us if you do not need access to your entire health record - of the periods and parts of your health records that you require, along with details which you may feel have relevance (e.g. consultant name, location, diagnosis).

There is no fee for making an SAR, but if manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive, a fee can be charged.

You should receive a reply to your request within 1 calander month.

You should also be aware that in certain circumstances your right to see some details in your health records may be limited in your own interest or for other reasons (e.g. to protect the privacy of third parties).

You also have the right to have information explained to you where necessary (e.g. medical abbreviations).
