From the 25th May 2018 you have the right under the GDPR to request access to view or obtain copies of what information the surgery holds about you and to have it amended should it be inaccurate. In order to request this you will need to do the following:
- Your request must be made in writing to the Practice. For any information from the hospital then you should write to them for this.
- You will need to provide adequate information so that your identity can be confirmed, your records located and the correct information supplied. (e.g full name, date of birth, address, NHS number and full details of your request)
- There will be no charge for subject access requests, although the Practice does hold the right to charge for requests deemed excessive
- You will receive a response from the Practice within one month of the original request being received.
If you have any further questions on the process of accessing your medical records then please let us know.
