I was wondering if anyone on here knew or was familiar with the law regarding obtaining test results from your surgery. For the last few months, I have had my test results emailed to me when requested with the GP's permission on a case by case basis. I am now being told that the surgery can no longer email me my results as it is "illegal" to do so. Has anyone heard of this? How can it be illegal to send me my own results? Unfortunately, I no longer live close to the surgery but after talking with my Doctor have decided to stay there as we are in the middle of a 'process' and because of the pregnancy. I need to see the results as the receptionists on the other line only read out the notes from the doctor and do not go through each line with me- understandably as that would take awhile!
Can anyone point me to a site with legislation/ patient's rights so I know where I stand on this? Thank you!!! xxxx
