Your privacy

The information you give us will be dealt with in confidence and you can raise concerns anonymously.

If you provide us with your contact details, we may use this information to:

  • respond to you - if you have asked us to
  • contact you - if we need further details.

We will treat your personal information in confidence but there may be times when we need to share it with others. This includes when:

  • we believe a vulnerable person is at risk of harm
  • a serious crime has been committed
  • another organisation needs to take action to ensure the safety and quality of care.

You can find out more about our approach to confidentiality in our Privacy statement.
