Subject access requests
You have a right as a service user to request a copy of the information we hold about you under the General Data Protection Regulation, and this is known as a subject access request (SAR).
SARs should be made to our Medical Records Manager. This can be verbally or in writing, but in the interests of keeping service user information confidential you may be asked to provide proof of your identity before your information is released, so you may still need to write to us with these documents. Should a 3rd party apply to access records, we will require evidence of either your consent or other legal basis to access your records.

Although completing and returning our application to health records form is not compulsory when making a SAR, it can help us to ensure we have a clear understanding of your request and enable us to deal with it quickly and efficiently.
