Access to Medical Records

The practice is highly computerised. This enables the practice to provide you with the highest possible standard of primary care.

The practice has a written policy for which groups of individuals within the primary care team can have access to patient records. The practice has a duty to maintain the confidentiality of patient information and to satisfy itself that the applicant is entitled to have access before releasing information.

All applications for access to records, whether paper based or electronic, of living persons are now made under the Data Protection Act 1998.
