Accessing your records

North Central London CCG does not directly provide healthcare services and as such does not hold personal healthcare records. If you wish to have sight of, or obtain copies of your own personal healthcare records you will need to apply to your GP practice, the hospital or the NHS organisation which provided your healthcare.

Everyone has the right to see, or receive a copy of information held that can identify them, with some exceptions. You do not need to give a reason to see your information, but you may be charged a fee.

Access to your information held by the CCG

Under the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK General Data Protection Regulations, members of the public have the right to view, request and receive a copy of information held that about them, with some exceptions. You do not need to give a reason to see your information and in most cases the CCG wouldn’t charge a fee to comply with a subject access request. However, North Central London CCG can charge a “reasonable fee” for the administrative costs of complying with the request if:

  • it is manifestly unfounded or excessive; or
  • in individual requests further copies of their data following a request.

This right can be exercised via submission of a Subject Access Request (SAR) to North Central London CCG. To make a SAR, please contact:

Note: in order to deal with a SAR, North Central London CCG will need to share information with NHS London Shared Services.
