Accessing your Health Record (a Subject Access request)
Under the new GDPR 2018 regulations individuals have a right to apply for access to view or to obtain copies of what information the surgery holds about you and to have it amended should it be inaccurate. A subject access request can be made electronically, in writing or verbally.

Before access is provided the identity of the person making the request must be verified so proof of identity will be required. e.g. a driving licence or passport with photo id.
