Hello, and thanks for the additional question.

Your son is entitled to his child's medical records. The surgery should not refuse this access as if he has parental responsibility he is entitled to be involved not only in important decisions about his daughter's health but also to be a point of contact for the surgery.

He may have to verify his identity first, for obvious reasons, but the records should not be withheld.

I hope this assists.
