Health records contain information about your condition and any episodes of care and treatment you receive. Each time you have contact with services, having up to date information in your health record enables the clinician who sees you to make informed decisions about your care.
Your health record also provides evidence of the care you received that can be referred to if you have any questions about it afterwards.
You have a right to request access to your health record.
Update as of Thursday 11 January 2024
We have previously issued updates on this page about the unprecedented situation we faced as we worked through a very significant backlog of requests.
We have now successfully worked through the vast majority of this backlog and so the situation has returned to normal. That means if you make a request you can expect to receive a response in the permitted time frame.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through the situation.
