MEDICAL RECORDS ACCESS

Access to Records

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and Access to Health Records Act, patients may request to see their medical records. Such requests should be made through the Practice Business Manager and may be subject to an administration charge. No information will be released without the patient consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.

We use a processor, iGPR Technologies Limited (“iGPR”), to assist us with responding to report requests relating to your patient data, such as subject access requests that you submit to us (or that someone acting on your behalf submits to us) and report requests that insurers submit to us under the Access to Medical Records Act 1988 in relation to a life insurance policy that you hold or that you are applying for. iGPR manages the reporting process for us by reviewing and responding to requests in accordance with our instructions and all applicable laws, including UK data protection laws. The instructions we issue to iGPR include general instructions on responding to requests and specific instructions on issues that will require further consultation with the GP responsible for your care.

Please click on the link below to download the form to your desktop, which will enable you to complete online. This can then be emailed to nmp.nutwood@nhs.net. Alternatively, print out and complete by hand, then return to the surgery.
