Subject Access Request (SAR) or Access to Medical Records Act?

Friday 6th Apr 2018

There is currently much confusion about what practices will be able to charge for once GDPR comes into force in May 2018.  If a patient request for information is made via a Subject Access Request (SAR), no charge can be made unless the request is found to be excessive or unreasonable.

 However, insurance reports are not made under a SAR, they are made via the Access to Medical Records Act (AMRA).  Standard charges for these requests will still apply as they do currently.

 There is still much for us to learn around GDPR, however, rest assured, we will ensure to update you on the latest news, hints & tips and best practice as soon as we can.
