Accessing your Record

We are fully supportive of patients having access to their record. However, as Data Controllers of the GP record and custodians of patient care, we have a dual obligation to uphold our responsibilities to patients in terms of information governance as well as clinical safety.

We have been advised by both the BMA and The Surgery’s Data Protection Officer to not grant automatic prospective (future) access to the full electronic medical record.

Patient requests to prospectively access their records will be acted on when the practice is able to do so safely in a way that meets their obligations as Data Controllers.
