Deceased father medical records

We're waiting for Sally to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

I would like to access my late fathers medical records so that my medical issues can be looked at properly. He was never diagnosed but ended up on dialysis and passed suddenly. I would love to know whether this is my future.

The biggest issue in getting his records is due to him never residing in the uk, but lived and died in South Africa. Is there a way to access this information ?

Yours faithfully,
Sally Haddon.
