Asking for copies of test results

Sorry for such a stupid question but I know someone will be able to tell me the answer!

We've been undergoing fertility investigations through the NHS but have started looking at other options. A lot of private clinics want you to pay for the tests that I have already had done through the NHS. Can I ask the NHS for our records and if so who do I ask? Do I ask my GP or the hospital itself and is there a fee for doing so?

Also can they give you them straight away or do you have to wait for them and if so how long for?

so confusing ?(

Forgot to say the test results I need most are my bloods and his SA although if they could give me the others like my HSG scans etc that would be good - not sure how much is reasonable to ask for (if any)

Ooh, good question. I'm also interested in the answer to this one :smile: I wonder if the clinics prefer to do their own - I think for the fsh test different clinics use different assays which can give a very different result but that's about all I know ?o(

I hadn't thought of that but having seen the price lists for the various tests then it would be great if they could use some of them if not all! Just hope someone can tell us...

Yup. You are entitled to copies of all your medical files. You may have to pay for the photocopying (I think its about 10 pound) but they have to provide them to you within 40 days.
