Re: And as for how long...

>Six years after the patient died

Sorry wasn't clear, the NHS only retain the last thirty years of medical records for living people. Hence in my case, a couple of years back when I had cause for the Dr to prescribe antibiotics did I discover that the allergic reactions to various antibiotics markers added when I was a child, had been deleted - given they were made over 30 years ago...

Whilst I did give the Dr the option, they decided on caution and added new markers and prescribed accordingly.
