Everyone has a right to access their health or personal data, this is known as a “Subject Access Request”.
Access requests are processed under the Data Protection Act 2018 or Access to the Health Records Act 1990
Your clinical records are an important part of your care and treatment. In most cases, the Trust will store your medical records electronically.
Electronic records mean that information about your care can be stored safely in one place, with no need to move paper records between our sites and services.
Most of our records are stored using a system called OpenRiO. Some services use different systems, such as CaMIS, eCaMIS, eDocs, eQuest, HICSS and Symphony.
Our staff may also access information that is included in the Care and Health Information Exchange (CHIE) and the NHS Summary Care Record. You will be asked for your consent to do this, and you can opt out if you choose.
