Accessing personal information
The General Data Protection Regulation allows individuals to access their own information, while at the same time protecting individuals’ personal information from inappropriate use or disclosure.
Health & Social Care is experiencing unprecedented pressures due to COVID 19. The Information Commissioner’s Office have issued guidance recognising that, as resources might be diverted away from usual compliance or information governance work, understandable delays may be experienced by those making information rights requests during the pandemic. The Trust understands the significance of your request and we will endeavour to meet the required deadlines in all situations. However, we would appreciate your forbearance during these exceptional circumstances. Should you wish to speak to a member of staff, please contact 028 2766 1293.
