All requests for access to medical records must be in writing on an Application for Access to Medical Records Form (Subject Access Request).
The form must be fully completed and returned to the surgery accompanied by a £10 fee, which is non-refundable, should the request be declined. If you are applying on behalf of someone else please ensure you enclose a copy of the Power of Attorney for Health, enabling you to access this information if appropriate.
A response will be provided as soon as possible and in any event within 40 days. Where an application is declined, a reason will be given. In some circumstances, some parts of your record may be withheld.
We will then invoice you for the additional photocopying charges (35p per sheet) which will depend on the number of sheets copied up to a maximum charge of £50.00.
