You have a legal right to access your health records under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you wish to access your health records please write in to the Practice Manager to arrange an amicable time and date for this to be carried out.
If you are registered with a GP practice you will have a Summary Care Record (SCR) unless you have chosen not to. It includes important information about your health. For example, medicines you are taking, any allergies you may have or any bad reactions to medicines. If you need to be treated by healthcare professionals that do not know your medical history, having an SCR means your vital information can be recalled. This can help staff involved in your care make better and safer decisions on how to treat you.
For any further information or to complete an Opt In/Opt Out form call into the Surgery and the staff will be able to help you.
