Your Medical Records
We ask you for information about you so that you can receive proper care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, because it may be needed if we see you again, and allows continuity of care.
Our guiding principle is that we hold your records in strict confidence.
The Data Protection Act 1998 allows you to find out what information is held about you on computer and in certain manual records, including your health notes. This is known as “right to subject access”.
If you would like access to or copies of your records please write to the:
Medical Records Manager
Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
You are entitled to receive a copy, but a charge will be made for administration. 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 (to prevent mental or physical harm) or for other reasons such as not revealing third party information.
