  • It is quite common that people encounter difficulty in accessing their own medical records, but the fact is that you have a legal right to them.

    Hospitals and health care providers are obligated under law to provide medical records to patients upon request and to do so in a timely manner.

    Where there is resistance to producing medical records, a letter from your solicitor will remind the health provider or professional of their legal obligations.

    If the patient requesting their records received care from the HSE as a public patient, the HSE are still obligated by law to provide the records upon request.

    In most cases there should be no charge but there are occasions where a charge will be made. However, there are exceptional cases where sensitive information will be disclosed and where access can be denied.
