Accessing Your Medical Records


In accordance with the UK General Data Protection Regulation, patients (data subjects) have the right to access their data and any supplementary information held by this organisation. This is commonly known as a subject access request (SAR).

Data subjects have a right to receive:

  • Confirmation that their data is being processed
  • Access to their personal data
  • Access to any other supplementary information held about them

 Options for Access

As of April 2016, organisations have been obliged to allow patients’ access to their coded health record online. As of October 2023, this service now enables the patient to view their full medical record. Prior to accessing this information, you will have to visit the organisation and undertake an identity check before being granted access to your records.

In addition, you can make a request to be provided with copies of your health record. To do so, you must submit a request via the following methods:-
