I'm not sure if this question belongs here, it may be more of a legal issue. I'm interested in accessing my own medical records from a time when I was admitted to hospital as a child, I think it was 1992. The hospital in question no longer exists. I assume if the records still exist that this is possible under the Data Protection Act or Freedom of Information Act? Does anyone know where old records are stored, how long for, and how one goes about accessing them?
My reason for wanting to see them is pure curiosity; I'm a final year med student now myself and I'd be interested in comparing the treatment I received then with modern treatment.
