Who do we share personal information with and why ?

Our Trust shares personal information with a range of organisations.  We will always endeavour to share the minimum amount of personal information required, anonymising where necessary. However there will be some instances where personal information will need to be shared with other organisations for the purposes of caring for our patients.

We may share personal information with the following organisations for the purposes of delivering or improving healthcare, or where there is a legal requirement for us to do so:

  • General Practitioners (GPs)
  • Ambulance services
  • Other NHS Trusts and services
  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • Social services
  • Department for Work & Pensions
  • Education services
  • Voluntary and private sector providers
