Data Protection Act 1998

If you want to ask us for information which we may hold about you personally then this will be dealt with under the Subject Access Provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).


This would include information relating to employment and training records or anything which is limited to you as a person, employee or partner of any kind.

If you wish to make a Subject Access Request you should write to:

Mr Chris Brady
Health Education England
Blenheim House
Duncombe Street
Leeds
LS1 4PL

You can also email your request through to dpa@hee.nhs.uk.

Please specify the kind of information you wish to be made available to you and any time frames involved and ensure that you include proof of identity and the £10.00 fee. Proof of identity will usually consist of a formal document or bill with your name and address on it or your driving licence or passport. Health Education England has a duty to ensure that the information it processes is secure and we will only provide the information relating to you if we are satisfied regarding your identity. We therefore require you to provide us with reasonable proof of your identity.

Under the DPA we have 40 calendar days to provide the information you ask for. Please note though, that we are unable to begin processing your request until the fee and proof of ID are received.

However, where an exemption is available under the DPA, Health Education England may not provide you with the information covered by the exemption. It is also the case that Health Education England will not have to provide you with any information that might identify any other individual unless that person agrees.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the way in which we deal with your Subject Access Request, you may complain in writing to the Information Commissioner at:

The Office of the Information Commissioner
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire
SK9 5AF
