Sharing information about you so that you get better care
West Sussex County Council, the NHS, and other organisations work closely together to make sure adults living in West Sussex who use services receive co-ordinated assessments and care.
Why is it important we share your personal information with others?
We want to make sure we provide you with a good, coordinated and efficient service. To do this we need to share your personal data with health and social care professionals involved in your care. This means you will not have to repeat the same information each time a care professional is involved. It also gives the care professionals the information they need to support you. We may also share your information with other organisations during public emergencies.
We comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK General Data Protection Regulation. We will process your data in line with the requirements of this legislation.
What information will be shared?
We will share basic personal information about you, such as your name, address, date of birth, and doctor’s details. We will also share the information we gather during your assessments. This could include medical information, or be about any difficulties you are having, what you tell us you need, and details of any help or services you are receiving.
Who will you share my personal data with?
We share your data with health and social care professionals. For a full list please see the Adults’ Services full privacy notice.
