Obtaining records and results

Medical records

Please send a written Release of Medical Information request on practice letterhead to Patient Information Management Services (PIMS)/Medical Records on fax (08) 9388 1780 to obtain the following records:
  • discharge summaries
  • outpatient letters
  • procedure reports (for example, gynaecology).

If this is not the GP as recorded by the patient on our patient management system then a breach of patient confidentiality exists. In such circumstances, as per WA Health policy, the GP practice should also provide a copy of the patient's consent to verify the patient approves this GP accessing their personal records.

Radiology results

Please send a written request on practice letterhead to Radiology on fax (08) 6458 2747.

Pathology results

Please phone PathWest on 13 72 84.

Advise receipt of incorrectly directed patient information

Please return by fax to Medical Records PIMS clerks on fax (08) 9388 1780.
