Reminder that it is no longer necessary for applications for recovery of records to be intimated to the Lord Advocate

Practitioners are reminded that a practice note has been issued in each sheriffdom advising that with effect from 1 November 2006, for the purpose of rules 28.2(3)(c) of the Ordinary Cause Rules 1993 and 18.1(3)(b) of the Summary Cause Rules 2002 it is no longer necessary for a copy of a specification or an incidental application for the recovery of medical records to be intimated to the Lord Advocate.

A similar practice note has been issued in the Court of Session.
