How to Access Copies of Medical Records
Subject Access Requests (SARs) for Copies of Health Records
Medical records hold information about you. They are also sometimes called health records.
You'll have separate records for any NHS service you go to including your GP surgery, hospital, dentist or opticians.
Health and care 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
