We want to make sure we give you the best care we can when you are a patient. To help us do that we need keep some information about you. Below is a guide to the information collected, held and used by us whilst you are a patient.
You ask us to
We ask you if we can and you say “yes”
We have to by law
It is to help with your care
Someone is in danger, for example to stop someone from being badly hurt.
If other organisations are caring for you, or about to start caring for you, we may need to share your health information with them. We will only do this when this will help you. Sharing could be to social services or private healthcare organisations.
Where we can, we will try to ask you if it is ok to do this. There may be times when we need to share this information without asking. This may be because we are not able to ask you or because it needs to be done quickly to help you.
We have trained people who can help you decide how you want to share your information and only when it is in your best interests.
For details on how we use your information or make a complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
