Requesting records

Information from your own record or the record of a dependant or family member can be requested from the Clinical Record Service by sending your request in writing OR completing the Release of Information form [PDF, 421 KB] and sending this information to the Release of Information Team by:

    • or mail: Release of Information Team, Clinical Records Department, Building 21, Auckland City Hospital, Private Bag 92024, Auckland 1023

If you are sending your request in writing rather than completing the Release of Information form [PDF, 421 KB], please ensure you provide the following information so your request can be actioned without delay:

    • Patient first name and surname
    • Patient Date of Birth
    • Patient NHI number (if possible)
    • Specific details of the information you require including dates of hospital admissions
    • Date the record is required by and the reason if urgent
    • Your name (if not the patient)
    • Your contact number and mailing address
    • Proof of identity (drivers licence or passport)
Please note: If the request is for the clinical record of a family member who is not a dependant (16 years or under) then that person's consent is required in writing.
