The following explains how to request access to or copies of your medical records:

  • Place all requests in writing, if you can give some idea as to why you have made the request, this will help the GP find the relevant information.
  • Complete one of our consent forms, (this is a legal requirement and MUST be done by the person whose medical records are being requested). The only exceptions to this rule is if the records are for a child then their legal guardian may sign, or a patient is mentally or physically unable to sign then the person that as the legal right to do so may sign on their behalf. 
  • Hand your request and consent form into Reception (not to a Doctor in an appointment) this is so the progress can be tracked.
  • Your request will be considered and you will be advised in writing of the decision within 21 days. There is no facility for immediate access. 
  • There will be a fee for access and copies of notes if required; this will range from £10 to £50 depending on size of notes or amount of information.
  • Payment due on collection.
  • If you wish to view your records this is usually done in the presence of a medically trained person who will be able to explain medical terminology and abbreviations, to do this please contact the surgery to arrange a suitable time, this will not be done in surgery time and the fee for access will be £10
