How to access your information

 

Under the Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation one of your rights is that you can make a request for a copy of all or a specific piece of information the Trust holds about you, how and why we process your information and who we share your information with.

For data held in your health record you will need to make a formal request to the Health Records team, more information can be found on the Health Records page. For further information please see Access to Health Records Leaflet.pdf

For your staff record you need to make your request to your Line Manager or contact the HR Department

Quite often, patients and staff members request personal data information (such as e-mails held on the Trust servers).  Where this request is made as part of a Complaint or a general Subject Access request, the relevant team will liaise with the Information Security team.  Alternatively, a request can be made direct through the personal data request process by emailing PDR@UHNM.nhs.uk
