A couple of weeks ago I rang my surgery to obtain an appointment with my Doctor. Only to be informed that I had moved away and my notes had been requested by another practice. Which I had not
So today I've just E mailed this to my local primary care trust:
Two weeks ago I rang my practice to arrange a medical appointment. However to my amazement I was informed that I was no longer registered with the practice. The practice manager intimated to me that I had moved out of the area, and therefore my medical notes had been asked for by WKPCT, to be forwarded on to the practice that had requested them. This was as long ago as late 2006.
This came as some surprise to me as I have lived in the West Kent area for some 55 years, and been registered with the practice for at least 25 years. I have never moved out of the area in this time.
Please supply me with the following information under a Freedom Of Information request.
1. Which practice requested my medical notes in the latter part of 2006?
2. Were any checks carried out to ascertain that this was a legitimate request for this sensitive information?
3. Where have the documents been held since 2006?
4. Where are these important documents now?

I wonder what the reply will be?
