PATIENT CONSENT

ACCESS TO MEDICAL RECORDS BY CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE & THEIR PARENTS

Legally, patients from the age of 12 years, who are judged by their own GP to be able to make decisions on their own, must agree if the practice is to give out medical information to their parent/guardian.

Patients, who fall into this age group and require tests after seeing a clinician, will be asked for their consent to share medical information with their parents/guardians and this will be recorded in their medical Record.
