Subject Access Request (SAR)
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), individuals have the right to obtain:
- confirmation that their data is being processed
- access to their personal data (and only theirs)
- other supplementary information – this largely corresponds to the information that should be provided in a privacy notice
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) clarifies that the reason for allowing individuals to access their personal data is so that they are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing and understand how and why the practice is using their data.

This policy does not apply to requests to access records of deceased patients, as the GDPR does not apply to the data of deceased patients.
