Access to Records

In accordance with the Data Protection Act, Access to Health Records Act and GDPR, patients may request to see their medical records.

Such requests should be made through the practice manager. No information will be released without the patient consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.

Care Quality Commission

CQC has powers under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 to access and use your health information where it is necessary to carry out their functions as a regulator.

This means that inspectors may ask to look at certain records to decide whether we are providing safe, good quality care.

For more information, please visit the CQC website.


GP2GP enables patient’s electronic health records to be transferred directly and securely between practices. It improves patient care as GPs usually have full and detailed medical records available to them for a patient’s first consultation.
