What is a Privacy Notice?

Privacy Notice explained

A privacy notice is a statement that describes how NHS South Sefton CCG collects, uses, retains and discloses personal information. Different organisations sometimes use different terms and it can be referred to as a privacy statement, a fair processing notice or a privacy policy.
To ensure that we process your personal data fairly and lawfully we are required to inform you:

  • Why we need your data
  • How it will be used and
  • Who it will be shared with

This information also explains what rights you have to control how we use your information.
The law determines how organisations can use personal information. The key laws are: the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA), the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA), and the common law duty of confidentiality, along with health specific legislation such as the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Within these pages we describe instances where NHS South Sefton CCG is the “Data Controller”, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 2018, and where we direct or commission the processing of patient data to help deliver better healthcare, or to assist the management of healthcare services.

NHS South Sefton CCG recognises the importance of protecting personal and confidential information in all that we do, all we direct or commission, and takes care to meet its legal duties.

This part of the fair processing notice outlines the management of the notice, contact details and other access to information legislation.
