Your health records

What are my health records?

Health records include information about your health and any care or treatment you have received.

This could be, for example, tests and scans, x-rays, or letters to and from hospice staff.

Recording this information allows health and social care professionals to work with one another more effectively, which supports us to look after you better.

How and where are my health records kept?

Your records can be written on paper, held on a computer, or both.

How do I ask to see my health records?

You can see your records and get a copy.

For more information on this please see How to apply for access to your health records which will guide you through the process.
