Medical records and confidentiality

We will keep confidential medical records of your condition and treatment including test results, x-rays and scans. 

Your privacy 

We’re committed to ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of your sensitive information is secure.

Accessing your medical record

You can speak to your health care team about:

  • Applying for access to see your medical record. As a general rule, no information concerning you will be given to anyone else unless you give permission in writing.
  • Seeking  access to documents not relating to you, under the Right to Information Act 2009 or the Information Privacy Act 2009. This includes applying to access your child’s records if the child is incapable of giving their consent in writing.
