Dear University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust,

I would like to make another request under the FOI Act.

For the purposes of the Act, please take the date of your receipt of this request as 29th January 2016.

Your trust is one of a number of that process the personal confidential data of all patients treated/investigated by you and upload it to the Hampshire Health Record (HHR).

I am interested in the process by which patients may express their objection to such processing and prevent the uploading of their data to the HHR (whether they have opted out of the HHR at their GP surgery or not, or whether they are a local resident or visiting from outside of the area), and whether this has changed in any way recently.

• Please could you provide me with the process by which patients may express their objection to such processing and prevent the uploading of their personal confidential data to the HHR, pursuant to the Data Protection Act and the NHS Constitution. If patients have to fill out a specific opt-out form, please provide this to me, together with the details of what ID to include, who to send the form to etc.

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the requested information promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this request as recommended by the ICO (“It would be good practice to acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt with”).

Thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Neil Bhatia
