Patients can request access to their own medical records although they cannot be removed from practice premises. If copies or computer printouts are required, a charge is made for this to cover the cost incurred. Access to medical records for people outside the health care team (or who are involved in patients’ clinical care) is only given with the patient’s express written permission. All requests should be sent in writing to the Practice Manager.
Anonymised health information is sometimes requested for University Studies.
