Requests for health records are completed under our Release of Health Records process. This process is typically used for processing requests for patient medical records, either from the patient themselves or from a third party such as hospitals, ICBC, and law firms. If you are a third party requesting a health record on behalf of a patient, we require the patient’s written consent prior to release.
- Download the
Request for Access to Health Records form. You can also request a form in person from one of our clinics.
- Fully complete the form. Provide all requested information, including appropriate signatures.
- Submit the completed form by fax or physical mail. See the form for contact information. For privacy reasons we do not accept request forms by email.
BCCDC will respond to your request within 30 working days. You may be contacted should any additional information or clarification of your request be required.
There is no fee for requesting a copy of your own information (e.g. your medical record). Fees may apply for requests made by a third party on your behalf.
