Access to Medical Records

Medical Records are both computerised and hard copies. Patients can request their medical records by completing a form at the surgery.

If you have been in an accident, or should require your medical records for the hospital or a court case the request must come directly from your solicitor or insurance company. They should address it to the secretary and have written consent from the patient it is regarding.

Please note we are unable to give out any medical records without the consent of the patient it is regarding. If the patient is unable to give consent, then their legal guardian will then make the decision for them.

At the moment, medical records for new patients at the practice are taking at least 8 weeks to arrive at the surgery, so if you are joining the surgery and have an on-going medical condition, try to bring as much information on it as you can for us to scan into your notes (i.e. hospital letters).

For more information, please contact the practice or phone the surgery and ask to speak to the secretary regarding medical records.
