Accessing your child's health record

Providing copies of your child's Patient Health Records

To make a request for your child's personal health information you will need to complete the following form: Access to child's health records form

Please return the completed form, including any relevant documentation to the information governance department via:

Email: accesstohealthrecords@mkuh.nhs.uk or 

Post: to Milton Keynes University Hospital, Information Governance Department, Standing Way, Eaglestone, MK6 5LD

*Please note that if the child is 13yrs of age or over we may ask to see proof of their consent.

Fees
We will not charge a fee for providing your childs patient health record, However, we may charge a ‘reasonable fee’ when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive.
We may also charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information. The fee will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.

Viewing records
An appointment MUST be arranged with the Information Governance Department prior to viewing records electronically. Please contact us on: 01908 995042

The trust will endeavour to deal with your request within a 21 day time limit (NHS best practice). However, by law we have 30 days to respond, if this is likely to take longer the applicant will be warned and an explanation of the delay provided.
