Transfer of medical records requests
Earlwood Medical Centre possesses ownership of medical records, and we will endeavour to assist patients in accessing and transferring medical records where possible and in accordance with the privacy legislation. All requests for medical records transfer are evaluated by our Doctors and it is at their discretion that they may be released.
If you would like to request a copy of your medical records please do so in writing with your full name, date of birth, signature and contact details. A medical practitioner, solicitor or insurer may request records on your behalf but we will only accept written requests that include your written consent. Please note that it may take from at least 10 business days to 3 months of turnover and processing time for release of records requests, depending on the records size and nature of the matter.
Please note that a variable charge may be payable to cover for associated production and administration costs.
