Personal information is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act, but you do have the right to obtain copies of or view your own health record under the Data Protection Act 1998. These requests need to be in writing. Please see the patient information leaflet for further information. If you wish to apply to access your health record please download and complete the subject access request form and return it to our health records centre.

We are allowed to charge a fee (maximum £50) to cover our administrative costs and copying charges.
