Hi there,

Is it possible for a doctor to send you EKG results through email? Would he do that or not. I had a EKG 2 years ago but got no results, i was just wondering if i could fone the surgery and see if they could email then through. Im from the UK and dont understand the laws, lol.

Regards.

In the US it certainly can be done--medical facilities here are required to keep your records for at least 7 years and share them with your physicians upon your request, in writing. Also, here they are allowed to charge you a small service fee to cover the cost of duplicating, postage, etc. It's usually around 5 $ usd, so that would be about 2.50 pounds sterling.

Not sure what your laws are--but here's an article from the BBC that explains the laws in UK regarding your access to your personal medical record.
