How do I request information from the Trust?

The information you are seeking may be may be available on this website. Our publication scheme also provides details on our services and the type of information we routinely publish. If you don’t find what you are looking for you can formally request the information from the Trust.

An individual’s access to their patient records is still covered by the Data Protection Act so no personal information of this sort will be published. The Data Protection Act 1998 allows you to find out what information we may hold about you on computer and in certain paper records.

 

We do not charge for supplying information under the Freedom of Information Act, only if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with the request would exceed the appropriate limits as stated in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 12-(1).

 

If you would like to see your health records or obtain copies of them please send your request
