FOI

Freedom of Information Act:
Overview

Individual Rights of Access

Individuals already have a right of access to information about themselves (personal data) which is held on computer and in some paper files under the Data Protection Act 1998, including their Medical Records.

In addition to the right to have a copy of any data held, it provides a right to have inaccurate data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed.

In accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act, there is a small charge for accessing personal information held.
