Requesting a Copy of Your Information

Typically, we collect information from health and care organisations providing your care and would advise contacting them directly for a more complete record of your care or treatment. We do not hold your whole medical or care record.

Where we store and use personal data collected from care and treatment records, it is mostly held as codes rather than words. We will provide a list of codes used to help you understand the information we give you. If you would like to request a copy of your personal data that NHS Digital is processing then you will need to complete a Subject Access Request Form and email or post it to the contact details on the form.

Following your request, we may write back to you within the 30-day timeframe to request you to narrow or modify your requirements. This may also result in an extension of a further 60 days whilst we examine your request.
