I would like to veiw the medical records as my surgery has on me, because I'm 99.9% sure most of mine are missing. Last time I saw my GP he was offering me treatments that had been tried and failed with the issues I had that day, and when I asked if he consulted the records I discovered they went back to only my previous address, not my home one. I've heard you have to pay, but what about the Data Protection Act? I thought you could demand to see any data held on you by anyone under the new laws? They never left my home practice in Derby! I have asked at the surgery I am with now, but they do not have the records, they only have sketchy bits going back to my previous address, not my home one when the records never left apparantly, so it might be worth contacting that practice and asking there. Would they tell me though without seeing me in person over the phone? The distance would make this awkward as it's about 30 miles from where I am now. I spose I could do it though if I had to. What kind of ID would they need as I don't drive, don't have a valid passport anymore and no bills come to my address in my name apart from bank statements, which I don't want to go showing off to anyone if I can help it. I'm not even sure they would accept a Council Tax sheet as proof it was me. I have nothing with my photo on apart from one of those prove it things for buying age restricted stuff. I asked my currant GP, he la la'ed about and said he would look into it, he never did. Does it cost to demand to see your own medical records under data protection? Because I could demand to see the ones they have at my currant surgery as proof they are not my full records I spose.
