Access to records of a deceased person

Records of the deceased are governed by the Access to Health Records Act and are usually kept for eight years after the patient’s death.

Only the person with an absolute right of access is the personal representative, who is the executor or administrator of the deceased persons’ estate.

Other individuals with a claim may request information and will be required to define on what grounds the request is being made.
