There can be various reasons for requesting medical records from the ambulance service. This process requires great care, as it concerns very private and sensitive information. A copy of the medical records can, therefore, only be provided under strict conditions.
Who can request medical information?
Patients (or their appointed legal representatives) have the right to request their own data. A third party may request medical information provided they are explicitly authorized to do so by the patient (or the legal representative of the patient). In order for an application to be successful, the correct information must be provided. If you wish to make a request, you will be sent the required forms. The forms must be completed in full and can be sent securely to Hollands Midden Regional Ambulance Service by replying to our e-mail.
Our way of working at Hollands Midden Regional Ambulance Service
The Ambulance Medical Manager assesses the application for medical records.
- If your application is rejected, you will be sent an explanation setting out the reasons for the decision not to provide the data.
- If the application is approved, the quality officer shall be responsible for copying the requested information.
The provision of the records shall be noted in the original records.
