Noticeboard

 

Can I access someone elses medical records?

Health records are confidential so you can only access someone else's records if you're authorised to do so.

To access someone else's health records, you must:

  • be acting on their behalf with their consent, or
  • have legal authority to make decisions on their behalf (power of attorney), or
  • have another legal basis for access

For further information go to: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/access-to-someone-elses-medical-or-health-records.aspx

 

If you wish to fill in a consent form to allow surgery staff to speak to another person/s on your behalf please follow the below link and sign and give to Reception.
