Accessing Health Records

Health records are confidential so you can only access someone else’s records if you’re authorised to do so.

To access someone else’s health records, you must:

  • Be acting on their behalf with their consent
  • Have legal authority to make decisions on their behalf (power of attorney)
  • Have another legal basis for access

For more information please visit NHS: Can I access someone else’s medical records (health records)?

If you would like to authorise someone else to access your records, please complete this form and hand it into the surgery.
