Freedom of Information Disclosure Log
Viewing previous FOI requests and responses.
If you wish to view a previous FOI request and the Trust response you may do this by emailing the FOI Team on FOI@ngh.nhs.uk. We keep up to five years worth of historic requests and responses which are available to view on request.
Requests for medical records are often received in addition to Freedom of Information requests. Due to the personal nature of these requests they are reclassified as "Subject Access Requests" .
They are not detailed on the Freedom of Information Disclosure log.
Your health records held by NGH are classed as "personal information".
Applicants cannot access personal information (e.g. their medical/health records) under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Personal information is exempt from disclosure under Part II (Section 40 - Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information Act.
Access to personal information is governed by different legislation, the Data Protection Act 2018.
To apply for your medical records, you need to apply in writing to:
