Subject Access Request / Access to Medical Records
The Access to Health Records Act 1990 and Data Protection Act give patients or their representatives a right of access, subject to certain exemptions, to their health records. Stow Surgery respects the rights of individuals to have copies of their information wherever possible.
The surgery offers patients the facility to view their medical information (and other things such as booking and cancelling appointments) online. This is the recommended method of accessing information.
A system called SystmOnline is used and registration can be requested via the Home Page of the website or via the link below.
