I have been having a gut of a time trying to access my medical records to obtain historical blood test results so I can see what thyroid, antibodies and vitamin tests have been previously conducted.
I can access results, coded records etc, but only back to December 2017. My surgery reception staff have told me my online records do not go any further back than Dec 2017 and I must now fill out a paper form and wait up to a month for a paper copy of my full record as they aren't available online. I must also provide a reason why I wish to obtain my record (which my GP can apparently deny) along with range dates.
Forgive me, but I was under the impression medical records have been available online since 2015? I understand records may not go back indefinitely, but can anyone advise on exactly what the law is regardinh accessing my records and how far back I can view as info on NHS website is pretty hazy.
Many thanks x
