Third party access to medical records

For routine audit purposes, representative of the NHS West Sussex will be required to look at patients medical records. The auditors may not be medically qualified but are all bound by their contract of employment to respect confidentiality. However, if you do not wish your notes to be used in this way, please inform a receptionist.

Insurance Companies and Solicitors will ask for access to your medical records in certain circumstances e.g. mortgage application and accidents. We will only release this information if you have signed the required consent form.

You have a right to see your medical records, subject to certain legal limitations. If you wish to have access to your records you should speak to the Practice Manager, who will advise you of your rights under the Access to Medical Records Act 1990
