We may disclose your information to others, but only where this is necessary either to comply with our legal obligations or as permitted by Data Protection legislation. We may share it with other public service bodies including the NHS, the Care Quality Commission, the police and other local authorities.
The reasons why we may share your data with other public bodies are as follows:
- To ensure health professionals have up-to-date information on health conditions and any medications you are taking.
- To enable emergency services to respond effectively to any emergency that you are affected by.
We will only disclose your sensitive or confidential information to a third party if we are legally required to do so or, where we have good reason to believe that failing to share the information would put you or someone else at risk of harm.
We will not pass your personal information to external organisations for marketing or sales purposes or for any commercial use without your prior expressed consent.
