How can you get access to your own health records?

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to see or have a copy of records the NHS holds about you.  You do not need to give a reason but you may be charged a fee.   

If you want to access your health records you should make a written request to the NHS organisation(s) where you are being, or have been, treated. For example, this could be the hospital or health centre where you were seen. You should also be aware that in certain circumstances your right to see some details in your health records may be limited in your own interest or for other reasons.

 

Surrey Care Record Update

 The Surrey Care Record is undergoing a review in the light of a number of recent developments including the need to align closely with the new regional Thames Valley and Surrey Local Health and Care Record (TVS LHCR).

No patient data is currently being shared and to ensure accuracy of advice to patients and the public, the content of this page is being revised to reflect changes in operational conditions. New material will be uploaded as soon as it becomes available. More information about Thames Valley and Surrey Local Health and Care Record can be found here.
