Patients can normally see their computer record in the consulting
room, though care has to be taken when people other than
the patient are present in the room.
Patients have access to their written and computer
records if requested, although the records may not be
removed form the practice premises. Assistance is given
by the practice manager if access is required to the
computer record and in this circumstance a member of
staff will stay with the patient at all times. If copies
or a computer printout are required, a charge is made for
this to cover costs incurred.
