What are "Subject Access Requests"?
Requests to see records and other related information about yourself are known as 'Subject Access Requests'. You have a right to get a copy of the information that is held about you.
Who can request this information?
- The named individual
- Personal representative e.g Power of Attorney
- Parent/Legal Guardian
How to make a request?
Complete the Subject Access Request Form and send it to the Information Governance Team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact the service you were seen by directly and they will put you in contact with the Information Governance Officer.
THGPCG must provide a copy of the information free of charge. However, a ‘reasonable fee’ may be levied when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive. The fee must be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.
We will need to verify your identity – guidance about this is given in our Subject Access Request Form which you may wish to use to make your application.
