Access to Records
In accordance with the GDPR and Access to Health Records Act, patients may request to see their medical records. It is the practice policy to authorise the viewing of an individual’s medical record on Patient Access. Patients over the age of 18 years can register for this service by producing two forms of identification (one must be photo ID) for verification at the practice. Once verified unlimited viewing is allowed. Caution must be executed by patients when using this service so as not to accidentally allow unauthorised access to your health record ie., keep passwords secure, do not use public computers, log off the system when viewing is complete.
No information will be released to third parties without the patient’s consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.
