You have certain legal rights, including a right to have your information processed fairly and lawfully and in a transparent manner, and a right to access any personal information we hold about you. These are called Subject Access Requests.
You have the right to privacy and to expect the NHS to keep your information confidential and secure.
You also have a right to request that your confidential information is not used beyond your own care and treatment and to have your objections considered.
If we do hold identifiable information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes by contacting us at the address detailed in the Contact Us section below.
You have the right to ask us to stop processing information about you where we are not required to do so by law – although we will first need to explain how this may affect the care you receive.
In some instances, you are allowed to request that your confidential information is not used beyond your own care and treatment and to have your objections considered. If your wishes cannot be followed, you will be told the reason (including the legal basis) for that decision.
If you wish to exercise your right to opt-out, or to speak to somebody to understand the impact this may have, if any, please contact us.
If you wish to know what personal information the ICB holds about you, or to request access to that information, then please contact us.
Further details of Information collected and used for specific purposes can be found below.
