November 2017 - Pro forma for practices

Please find attached an updated pro forma for practices that receive requests for medical records from the police. The original pro forma was distributed in June 2017.

Following discussions with the NPCC (National Police Chief’s Council) regarding signing off we have agreed that the level of police seniority that we recommend to GPs to obtain before considering releasing medical records to the police is lowered from Superintendent to Inspector. We have restated to the NPCC the need for any request from the police for medical records is only made when absolutely necessary.

Please note that this is the only change to the guidance that has been made.

We would be grateful if you could distribute this message and attached pro forma to your constituent practices.
