For other health purposes and for your benefit, we may share your information with other organisations such as Health Authorities, NHS Trusts, and General Practitioners. We may also need to share information with our partner organisations or with other non-NHS organisations if you are receiving care from them, such as the Local Authority or community health services.
Where information sharing is required with other organisations, we will always have a relevant Data Sharing Agreement or Data Processing Deed in place and will not disclose any health information without your explicit consent.
There may be exceptional circumstances where we are required to share you information without your consent such as; when your health or the health or safety of others is at risk; where the law requires it; or where it is required in order to carry out a statutory function.
Our guiding principle is that we are holding your records in strictest confidence. We follow both the Data Protection Principles and the Caldicott Principles as a guide for handling and sharing information.
