Your health records

The Data Protection Act 1998 allows you to make a request in writing for a copy of the information held about you on a computer or manually. This is called a subject access request.

How long do we keep your information

The Department of Health requires that health care providers retain patient records for a specific period of time after the end of care. For adults this will normally be 8 years after the date we last treated you and for children until your 25th birthday.

All paper patient records are held in a secure archive facility and are securely destroyed when the retention period expires.
