Under the Data Protection Act 1998, people have the right to see any files about them, including their health records. Access can only be denied if there are compelling reasons. The Data Protection Act replaced the Access to Health Records Act 1990 on 1st March 2000, for all applications except those to see records of someone who has died.
The Practice has a procedure for patients to apply to see their health records. If you would like further information or would like to submit an application, please put your request in writing addressed to the Practice Manager.
