We are seeing an increased number of care providers receiving requests for information relating to Track and Trace. Commissioners and other public authorities are also monitoring outbreaks and seeking to understand where Covid-19 may be spreading through local communities.
Providers have been grappling with the question of how to respond to such requests and what to do if they have not got consent. We have produced an advice note which confirms how you are able to respond to requests for personal data.
Building upon guidance issued by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the advice note sets out the legal grounds for sharing personal data (whether that relates to your staff or service users) as well as answering frequently asked questions. The document can be shared with staff for a quick and easy explanation of what they can do in response to a request. The advice note can also provide a foundation for completing a Data Protection Impact Assessment.
If you would like to purchase a copy of the advice note ‘Sharing personal data during Covid-19’, for a fixed fee of £350 plus VAT please contact Emma Watt.
