Dear NSW Ministry of Health,

If I pay $30 for dinitrophenol fatalities from 2015 to present date, will it also include the names, ages and sex of each person who died from dinotrophenol?

Dear S

I provide a Fact Sheet: Guide to Privacy Laws in NSW

Under legislation, any information from health records which identifies a person will not be released.

I refer you to The Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998
and to the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002

There is a lot of information about Information Access and Privacy available on the Information and Privacy Commission website:

The applicant made a request that I think I will call a "metarequest". He ask for information about what MIGHT happen IF he made a formal request. The agency has answered the metarequest as much as is possible and the applicant has not made an additional request on this page.
