Your prescription data is shown in My Kanta Pages after you have been issued with a prescription.

Your medical records are shown in My Kanta Pages after the person attending to your care has entered them in the Patient Data Repository.

Your data will be displayed in the service for as long as required according to the statutory retention period.

If your data is not shown, it may be due to one of the following reasons:

  • the healthcare unit you attended has not joined the Kanta Services yet
  • the healthcare unit you attended does not enter all data recorded in the patient data system in the Patient Data Repository for the time being
  • the organisation has specifically set a delay in the archiving of examination results in the patient data system 
  • an entry made by a healthcare professional has not been completed yet
  • you have not visited the healthcare unit after the unit has joined the Patient Data Repository.

Patients do not have a legal right to refuse the recording of their data in the Patient Data Repository or showing it in My Kanta Pages. When a healthcare service provider has deployed the Patient Data Repository, it is obliged to enter the patient data in the Patient Data Repository. The data will be shown in My Kanta Pages after the healthcare service has entered it in the Patient Data Repository.

My Kanta Pages shows the information recorded in the Patient Data Repository by the healthcare services. If you find errors or missing details in your medical records shown in My Kanta Pages, please contact the healthcare unit or pharmacy that entered the data.

The health service is responsible for entering patient records and correcting them. Each healthcare unit has its own procedure for correcting erroneous information, described on each unit's website. The unit’s data protection officer or patient ombudsman may also be able to advise you.
