Information Access Unit
As a registered health practitioner, you can also request access to patient information from the hospital’s health information services department.
You can send your request to DDInfoaccess@health.qld.gov.au. Your email must include your patient’s name, date of birth and consent to access their records.
You'll also need to be specific about the information you need to care for your patient. For example, a copy of their colonoscopy report in 2018.
We won't action a general request asking for a copy of a complete file. You'll be asked to refine the scope of your request.
