Accessing Medical Records or Health Information

Patients and clients have a legal right to apply for access to information held by a hospital either by giving a person a reasonable opportunity to inspect the document or by giving the person a copy of the document. Health records are subject to limited exceptions and can be amended to correct inaccuracies.

Copies of health records can be released under the Health Records and Privacy Act 2002 or the under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009. Where a client specifically wishes to access the records under these Acts, the requirements of these Acts apply.
