The Data Protection Act/GDPR gives you certain rights when it comes to your GP medical record.
The ICO has also published a useful booklet on Your Data Rights.
Voyager Family Health places privacy and data protection at the heart of all its processing.

The Right to Rectification
You have to right to ask for factual inaccuracies in your GP record to be corrected.
The Right of Access
You have to right to access your own GP medical record. You can:

The Right to Object
You have right to control how information from your GP record is shared outside of Voyager Family Health and used by the surgery.
