If you would like to obtain a copy of your medical records from Spire Little Aston Hospital please write to the Medical Records Department at Spire Little Aston Hospital and state your full name, date of birth and address. Please note, we only provide medical records from Little Aston Hospital. If you require medical records from a different Spire hospital, please contact them direct.
If your address was different at the time of your treatment please advise us of this. Please ensure your letter is signed using your usual signature as we will verify this against signatures in your patient record to confirm your identity.
If you only require a specific part of your medical record please advise us of this.
On receipt of your request, we will write to you confirming the costs payable for photocopying and postage (up to the maximum £50.00 charge under the Data Protection Act 1998). Once we receive payment we will ask the clinicians involved in your care to give their consent for release of your records to you. This may take up to 40 days. Once the copy of the medical record is ready to be sent to you it will be posted by recorded delivery.
Please note we will only be able to send a copy of your medical records held at Spire Little Aston Hospital. If you have received care elsewhere and also require these records you will need to write separately to these hospitals/clinics.
