The Access to Health Record (AHR) Act came into being in 1992, allowing people to have the right to have sight of their medical records. Under the Data protection Act 1998, you have the right to access all of your health records including those held by your GP.
If you wish to view the records held by the Practice, your request should be put in writing for the attention of The Practice Manager.
However if you wish to have a copy of your medical records a charge will be made.
If you need access to any health records that are held by any community based site, including the following:
- Royal Leamington Spa Rehab Hospital
- Ellen Badger Hospital
- Bramcote Hospital
Or any of the following services:
- Health Vistors
- Child Health
- Occupational Health
- Occupational Therapy
- District Nursing
You can request the relevant forms from NHS Warwickshire directly by writing to:
