Confidentiality / Data Protection / Freedom of Information
Trainees must maintain the confidentiality of information about patients, staff and other health service business in accordance with the Data Protection Act of 1998. Trainees must not, without prior permission, disclose any information regarding patients or staff. If any member of staff has communicated any such information to an unauthorised person, those staff will be liable to dismissal. Moreover, the Data Protection Act 1998 also renders an individual liable for prosecution in the event of unauthorised disclosure of information.
Following the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) 2005, Trainees must apply the foundation’s FOI procedure if they receive a written request for information.
