Abstract

This article summarizes the main provisions of the Access to Health Records Act 1990 and considers its implications for the medical profession. It is the authors' view that although it is unlikely that the majority of patients will avail themselves of their rights under the Act, its provisions could have significant implications in the field of medical negligence.
