Requesting your personal health record

Health records include clinical and medical records, immunization records, lab results, CT scans, and more. Any individual or their legally authorized representative can request a copy of or access to their personal health record. We recommend using the Interior Health official Request for Access to Records Form to make a request. Requests for personal health records are sent to the facility or program that provided the health-care services.

When accessing records of minors, incapable adults or deceased persons include the Declaration of Status form

The BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act allows up to 30 business days to provide the requested records.

If you believe there is incorrect information in your personal health record, you can write to the facility program where you received care. They will work with you to address your concerns.

Is there a cost?

Generally, no fees are assessed for a copy of a personal health record, but you may be charged for special processing of your request (i.e., courier fees, special delivery, or other special processing services).

What if I'm not satisfied?

If after receiving a response to your request for information you are not satisfied with the response, you can file a complaint with Interior Health by submitting a complaint form
