Data protection

The information held in our records and on our computer systems may be used for other purposes. These include clinical education, research and for managing the service both locally and at a national level.

Information will normally be used anonymously, usually in the form of aggregated data for statistical use. However, occasionally, specific information may be used for clinical audit purposes.

Access to clinical information is restricted so that, in normal circumstances, only those who are providing care or giving clerical support to them will see your records. Where occasionally others may need access, your consent will be sought.
