OPTIONS FOR ACCESS
This service will enable the patient to view information held in their electronic health record.
If you wish to access your record using this service, you will need to visit the practice, complete an application form and undertake an identity check before being granted access to your records.
Requesting Copies of Your Record
You can also make a request to be provided with copies of your health record. To do this, you must submit a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) form; this can be submitted electronically and the DSAR form is available on the practice website. Alternatively, a paper copy of the DSAR is available from reception. You will need to submit the form online or return the completed paper copy of the DSAR to the practice. There is no fee for this service.
Form to apply for copy of medical records
Once the DSAR form is submitted, Station House Surgery will aim to process the request within 21 days; however, this may not always be possible. The maximum time permitted to process DSARs is one calendar month.
There may be occasions when the data controller will withhold information kept in the health record, particularly if the disclosure of such information is likely to cause undue stress or harm to you or any other person.
