Is it possible to get a full copy of your medical records if you have switched Drs?

I don't see why not, surely all your records are transferred to the new GP

At my hospital you can request a copy of your notes, it costs £10, I'd guess gp notes would be the same

Depends - I think they have to give you access to allow you to see them, but may ask that you go through them with a doctor or nurse. I don't think they have to give you a copy.

They have to give you a copy under the Data Protection Act, but will charge you for it.

Not sure if it's then same for GPs but I got my hospital notes from the hospital for £35. If they'd been longer I think they can charge up to about £50 to copy them. They also have 40 days from your request to comply so it's not an instant process. To be fair once I received them I could see why they needed time, they were pretty bulky!
