Your Medical Records

Medical Records

The practice is often asked for information about patients from insurance companies or solicitors. On no account will any information be given without the patient's written consent. Information about a patient's medical condition will only be passed to other health professionals to help with treatment. Staff at the surgery have access to personal information on a need-to-know basis only and are bound by rules relating to patient confidentiality.

Child Health Information Departments

Child Health Information Departments are NHS services responsible for keeping some basic information about children’s health such as vaccinations they have been given. This is to help health professionals like GPs make sure children get their vaccinations on time.

A single Child Health Information System (CHIS) is now in operation for the whole of the West Midlands.

As part of a mandatory, national programme each GP Practice will have to make a summary care record for each patient (unless the patient has already opted out). Please read the information regarding this.
