How to transfer your medical records from another medical clinic

Have you previously been to another skin cancer clinic and want your medical history sent to Ministry of Skin to take over your care?

This can be easily organised.

Please speak to our reception team and they can provide you with a Change of Doctor.

Once you have completed and signed the form, please return to us so we can forward it to your previous doctor.

Your previous practice may charge a fee to cover the administrative cost, prior to sending your medical record in a confidential encrypted format to us.

We then upload the electronic data file into our medical practice software and integrate it into the ongoing medical notes we record.

How to transfer your medical record to another medical clinic

We understand that you may need to attend another skin cancer clinic and need them to take over your care.

We want to make this transition as easy as possible for you.

If you are attending a new medical clinic and would like your medical records to be transferred to them, you will need to complete a Transfer of Medical Records form from the practice you now wish to attend. We cannot release your records to another medical clinic without this consent form being signed by you.

Once we have received the form, we will send a basic health summary to the new practice which includes your overall health summary and medication list.

Once sent, we will contact you to advise that if you would like your complete record to be sent, a fee of $50 will be involved ($25 per extra family member if request is received at same time and is being sent to the same clinic). This covers the administration fees of transferring the records to a disc, posting them via registered post and time involved by our staff. If you are happy to proceed with transferring your records, you will need to advise reception that you would like to proceed so they can take payment and start the process of transferring your records.

Please note that with transfer of medical records, we endeavour to complete the request within 28 days.
