A few weeks ago I requested a copy of all my medical records from my GP practice and local Health Board. I want to know if at any time in the past 40 years any doctor ever questioned the effect nitrazepam might be having on me. I also want to see if they had any idea at all why I might be depressed. I suspect not. Anyway, the first folder of notes arrived today. A real disappointment as it only contains a few years of fairly recent notes (just prior to withdrawal) when I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. So nothing of interest at all. I was expecting all the notes to come at the same time so not sure why they have just sent a few years. I know my GP practice has copied all my notes but a GP has to check them before they are dispatched. I am sure the practice could well do without the extra work and I am in no hurry.
