Full information regarding Barts Health's Freedom of Information policies can be found here on the Barts Health website. 

Enquiries and applications for a copy of your own health records fall under the Data Protection Act, rather than the Freedom of Information Act.

The procedure for requesting a copy of your own health records is by means of a Subject Access Request (click "Subject Access Requests (SARs)" above).

 

Subject Access Requests (SARs) - Contact

Under GDPR, individuals have the right to access their personal data and supplementary information. This right allows individuals to be aware of and verify the lawfulness of the processing. The GDPR clarifies that the reason for allowing individuals to access their personal data is so that they are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing (Recital 63).

Similar to FOIs, Subject Access Requests relating to data/records held by the Barts BioResource should be directed to Barts Health NHS Trust. 

You can get a copy of your information by filling in the Subject Access Request Form and contacting:
