Access to personal information

Information about your personal treatment and care is confidential and will normally be something you will discuss with the healthcare professionals you meet.

If you want to have access to your medical records only then this is called a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998 and should be made in writing to:

The Medical Records Manager
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
The Royal Hallamshire Hospital
Glossop Road
S10 2JF

For such requests a fee of £10 is required. We are also entitled to charge a fee for copies and would advise you about this.

Limited rights of access to the medical records of a deceased person are given under the Access to Health Records Act 1990.

We would need to confirm your identity and details of what you want and we have 40 days to respond with the information but aim to do so in 20 days.
