Accessing personal information

The Data Protection Act 1998 also allows you to find out what information about you is held on computer and in certain manual records. This is known as “right of subject access”.

NHS Choices website has general information on

  • How you can access your own medical records
  • Learn if you can access other people’s medical records
  • Learn if others can access your medical records

Information regarding changes to how your medical record is held and shared electronically

If you want to see your records you should make a written request to:

The Information Governance Team
Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Bevan House

You may be entitled to receive a copy of the information you request but should note that a charge will usually be made. You should also be aware that in certain circumstances your right to see some details in your health records may be limited in your own interest or for other reasons.
