Subject access requests

The Data Protection Act gives everyone the right to access personal information that Barnsley Hospital holds about them. We hold data about patients, and people who work here employed by Barnsley Hospital Foundation Trust.

Any request for personal information from us is known as a Subject Access Request.

We will ask for proof of identity before any personal information is released.

Please be aware we reserve the right to charge you a fee for a Subject Access Request if it is deemed to be manifestly unfounded or excessive.
