Patients can usually see their own computer record in the consulting room as the doctor or nurse use it. Patients may also gain access to their own written and computer records. This request must be made in writing to the practice manager and an appointment time will be arranged. Formal identification (such as a passport or driving licence) may be requested before access to the records is granted. The records may not be removed from the practice premises and a member of staff will be present at all times. The practice manager or assistant practice manager will assist you with any questions you may have regarding your written and/or computer record.
If copies or a computer printout are required, a standard charge is made for this to cover costs incurred.
Access to medical records will not be given to anyone outwith the health care team without the express consent of the patient. Further information is available from the practice.
