Medical Records

Your medical record remains the property of the hospital. However, in accordance with Freedom of Information legislation, you can have access to your record by asking the medical staff who are looking after you. They will organise a time to sit down and read through the information with you.

Copies of the information contained in your medical record can be obtained by applying through the Freedom of Information Officer who is located in Health Information Services. An administration and copying fee is charged.
