Can I get a print out of my results from GP?

I had a 24 hour ECG done because I have an arrhythmia sometimes thats been hard to diagnose. I had an appointment with the GP and she said a few things but didn't read out the whole report.I also have a future cardiology appointment. I have health anxiety and would find it very reassuring to have the whole results just so I can read through and use it to stop myself worrying and feel more informed.

Would it be wrong or am I allowed to ask the GP surgery for a print out of my holter ECG results?

Under gdpr rules you can ask for everything they have on you now and they have to give it...

Yes. Speak to the receptionist and say you'd like to collect a print out. If it helps, say your work have requested it or something

You would be able to get the report but it might not reassure you that much if you’re an anxious sort - the reports often refer to things that sound exciting but are really not important.

I think the whole report will reassure me because I can get a fuller picture of whats going on with my body but I appreciate what you're saying.
