The GDPR and Data Protection Act has strict principles governing our use of information and our duty to ensure that it is kept safe and secure. Your information may be stored using electronic or paper records, or a combination of both. All our records are restricted so that only authorised individuals have access to them. Restricted access might be through the use of technology or other environmental safeguards.

Everyone working for the NHS is subject to the Common Law Duty of Confidentiality. This means that any information that you have provided to us in confidence will only be used in connection with the purpose for which it was provided, unless we have specific consent from you, or there are other circumstances which require us to have your information.

Under the NHS Confidentiality Code of Conduct, all of our staff are required to protect information, inform you about how your information will be used, and allow you to decide if and how your information can be shared, and with whom.
