Healthcare records contain, among other things, information about individuals’ health conditions, treatments and medicines, tests, scans and x-ray results. The records will also contain information which explains why particular course of treatment have been given and, in certain cases, why treatment has been withheld. This information may be useful to the patients themselves and third parties such as employers, insurers or even lawyers seeking to pursue clinical negligence claims.
