Accessing Your Medical Records at Lonsdale Medical Centre
As of April 2016 and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), patients have the right to access their data and any supplementary information held by their Medical Centre; this is referred to as a ‘Subject Access Request’ (SAR). Patients have the right to receive:
- Confirmation that their data is being processed.
- Access to their personal data.
- Access to any other supplementary information held about them.
To request access to view their own personal records and for security purposes, the patient will be required to complete a ‘Subject Access Request’ form (SAR) and undertake an identity check (2 forms of identification). Paper copies of the SAR form can be obtained from Lonsdale Medical Centre reception or downloaded from https://www.lonsdalemedicalcentre-kent.nhs.uk/media/content/files/SAR%20Form%202021.pdf. The completed forms and a scanned copy of the patient's 2 identity documents (at least one with a photograph) can be emailed to reception (email: email@example.com) or hand delivered to a member of our reception team.
Online access to medical records
