My partner got the records sent and then they said he had permission after that to discuss her, but they dont routinely let him know about illnesses though because administratively that would be a nightmare.

If he wants details in writing in the future then he''s been told he will have to pay again. :(

Unfortunately it would be an administrative nightmare. We are a fairly small practice, but to keep absent parents informed doesn''t bear thinking about. But we are happy to give information over the phone without charge, so that''s a good option. I''m afraid copying records is quite time consuming, plus we have to go through them meticulously and filter out anything referring to third parties (ie the parent). I know it sounds a lot, but most GP practices barely have enough time for the everyday stuff :(

Thanks for your input on this. I can understand how busy practices are and like you say it would be an administrative nightmare to write to the other parent everytime the children had an appointment.

I just think my fiance wants to be able to just ask questions and get the answers if he is concerned about something or wants something verified.

The girls are only 5 and already have a report as long as my arm.
