As of 1 July 2020 you are entitled to electronic inspection of your file. This is part of the Supplementary Provisions for Processing Personal Data in Healthcare Act (Wabvpz). With electronic access to your file, you can prepare better for conversations with the general practitioner in an accessible way and you are better able to make decisions about treatment choices. When you have visited the doctor, your medical data will be entered into the computer. Consider, for example, the results of an examination, your medication list or the advice of the general practitioner. When you log in to our patient portal, you can read your medical data online.

Children and online access to the file Parents or legal representatives have the right to inspect the file of their children under the age of 12. It is currently not possible to view the files of children under the age of 12 online. A child between the ages of 12 and 16 has its own right of inspection. Parents have the right to information only insofar as this information is relevant for giving consent to treatment of the child. From the age of 12, children can view their file online if they create an account in the patient portal via their own email address. The child decides for himself whether his parents have the right to inspect, this can be made known in writing at our practice. From the age of 16, the parents are not entitled to medical information without the child’s consent.
Be careful about giving out your information to others. You can show your medical file to others, for example to someone who helps you with your care. Never just give out your details. Sometimes insurers, municipalities or another agency or company ask for information about your health. You usually have no obligation to provide this information. In some cases you may want to provide the data: only provide the information that is required.
