What is our duty as a trust?
Confidentiality affects everyone: Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust collects,stores and uses large amounts of personal data every day, such as medical records, personal records and computerised information. This data is used by many people in the course of their work.
We take our duty to protect your personal information and confidentiality very seriously and we are committed to taking all reasonable measures to ensure the confidentiality and security of personal data we are responsible for, whether digital or on paper.
At Trust Board level, we have appointed a Senior Information Risk Owner who is accountable for the management of all information assets and any associated risks and incidents, and a Caldicott Guardian who is responsible for the management of patient information and patient confidentiality. We also have a Data Protection Officer who is responsible for overseeing the Trust’s data protection strategy and its implementation to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements. They can be contacted via Information.Request@candi.nhs.uk
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) , the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact us in the first instance: Information.Request@candi.nhs.uk
