Information collection from the website and use

The Trust does not store or collect any personal information about site users (with the exception of information submited via the Online self-referral form mentioned below). The system will record your email address and other information if volunteered to us by you. This information shall be treated as confidential. It may only be used for internal review and to contact you regarding any feedback.

Online self-referral form

If you complete and submit the online self-referral form for TALKWORKS your personal information is sent direct to the service. It is not stored on any of the web servers and is only used for the intended purpose of self-referring to the service.


You can send us your feedback, comment on policies, strategies or other issues relating to the Trust by contacting us. If you send an email or contact us asking for information, we may need to contact other NHS departments or external organisations to find that information. If your question is technical, we may need to pass it to our IT Department.

National Data Opt-out Programme

NHS Digital is developing a new system to support the national data opt-out which will give patients more control over how identifiable health and care information is used. The system will offer patients and the public the opportunity to make an informed choice about whether they wish their personally identifiable data to be used just for their individual care and treatment or also used for research and planning purposes. To find out more click here or use the NHS app.
