Can I obtain my medical records or the records of a relative?

Yes you can. You are entitled to your records, and any scans and x-rays, under the Data Protection Act 1998. Simply contact the medical records department of the hospital, or practice manager at the GP or dental surgery, and you will asked to complete and sign a form for the release of the records. It can take up to 40 days and the maximum cost is £50.00.

If you are requesting the records of a relative who has died your request is made under the Access to Records Act 1990. The procedure is the same as under the Data Protection Act 1998 however, the £50 cap does not apply and the hospital or surgery/clinic can charge an administration fee, full costs of photocopying the records and postage and packing.
