    Default Accessing medical records

    Hoping someone can help. Sil needs to get copies of her medical records as proof of her treatment and diagnosis for mental health issues resulting in her missing a lot of school in year 11 and 12 (which brought her grades down). She needs it to meet eligibility criteria for special consideration with uni.

    Is it possible for me to get copies of this stuff or will she need to do it herself?

    Perhaps ask the place where you are trying to get the records from. Eg the hospital or medical centre

    You might be able to get it if you had a signed authority from your sister, I would likely depend on what the policy of the particular centre was.

    Usually it needs to be applied for in writing. You could certainly do up the letter and then have her sign it. I would definitely ask the medical centres you need the info from and they'll be able to assist.

    I told her she should try first. Given the dramas we had just having her braces put on, I highly doubt I could even with her authority, it would probably have to be dh (its his sister).

    It took 6 weeks to get my medical records from hospital and a fee of $40 so keep that in mind if you are looking fr hospital notes.
    For notes from one GP to my new one when I moved areas only took a week after requested.

    If you are accessing from a hospital, ring their switchboard and ask for freedom of information people/liaison.
    They will send out appropriate paperwork and fees to your sister.

    Often it is as easy as going to a go and requesting it.

    Other than ring your old go and ask them to write a letter or fill out the forms.

    I have done this a few times for uni stuff
