Subject: Patient medical records

Dear Sirs, during my 12 years of care in Cyprus hospitals my medical file contains much information about me and my various medical problems, diagnoses and necessary medication treatment.
What will happen to this file information if I register with a doctor in a different medical centre to the one I have been using so far?
Will my medical file be passed to me to give to my new doctor / medical centre?
Or will the medical file and records be destroyed?

Regards

I have my medical records here at home.. They will stay with me.

Any new treatments will no doubt be recorded on the 'new' GP's files

Is that the 'near future' in geological terms? Smile

Most ex pats at this end of the island take their medical records files home with them, me included.. I would say that around 90% do this..
In answer to HOW do we do it, well we just walk out of the hospital with the file in a bag.. Mine is so large now I have an A4 lever arch file... We take them next time we visit a doctor there, either a GP or a consultant..

We obviously run a different system this end of the island.
I do have my records from Nicosia but that was only because they lost them twice and I insisted I keep them myself

That picture is almost the same at Paphos General as well.. Ex pats are not the only ones who take their files home. I would say that most Cypriots do here in the Paphos end of the island .

So when you register how are your records transferred to the doctor do theory know you are there ?
I'm just being curious . Don't think they ever read them anyway !
Usually you check in and the assistant takes your records to the doctors office

You register then proceed to Doctors office, wait until a patient comes out, then pass the file to the Doctors assistant, or pass it to the Doc if no assistant is present , then wait your turn.
A lot of people just knock on the door & hand it in, I prefer to wait until the Doc has finished seeing the patient.

I would roughly agree with Scottie and Murray..
But different doctors and hospitals work in different ways..

I was at Polis Hospital recently and when you register the 'labels' go to the doctor, so he or she knows you are outside waiting.. with your files..

At Paphos General when seeing a GP the Labels include a number.. This 'should' (ha ha) dictate your position in the queue outside the GP's room. But sadly many Cypriots seem to be masters a 'pushing in'.

Again at Paphos General if you are seeing a consultant, there is a list outside the doctors door showing all the names and appointment times of patients.
Usually the doctor (with the same list inside) comes out and calls your name..

Sounds like a really good system there. I've been thinking about this matter and on reflection I think I would rather they stayed where they are in the hospital . My GP is pretty up to date on her own records as to the state of my health at the moment and if I were to be hospitalised then the records would be there . Also if I am referred to a specialist ,again they are to hand. I know I could keep them but to be honest after all these years I would need a truck 😂😂😂
