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 similar statutory authorities including:
- NHS England
- Other Local Safeguarding Children Partnerships
- The National Child Safeguarding Panel
- The reasons why we may share your data with other public bodies are as follows:
- To protect vulnerable children and adults who may be at risk of harm or abuse
- To monitor and improve our performance and delivery of services
- For the prevention and/ or detection of crime
- Where necessary to protect individuals from the risk of harm or injury
- Where otherwise permitted under the General Data Protection legislation.
We will only disclose your sensitive or confidential information, such as medical details 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.
All three partners (council, police, CCG) have equal and joint responsibility for local safeguarding arrangements. Partners are considered separate Data Controllers for the data held by each organisation and shared at the ERSCP meetings and are each required to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection legislation. Where the ERSCP produce analysis or reports, which contain personal and special category data, the partners are considered joint data controllers with joint liability for compliance. However all partners will be responsible and accountable for the data produced by the ERSCP.
