The purpose of processing
Under the Care Act we will also use information under our safeguarding responsibilities to adults with care and support needs that may be experiencing, or at risk of, abuse, neglect or deprivation of assets and are unable to protect themselves because of these. This information will be shared with multi-agency partners such as the Health professionals and the Police on a need to know basis.
Where you have agreed to be the Relevant Person’s Representative we will consult with you as part of the assessment process. We will also share this information with any other relevant professionals and agencies in order to safeguard the Article 5 right of the relevant person.
The above information is stored on a secure database. If information is shared with others such as health professionals this will be done by secure methods.
We are collecting this data because we are required to under health and Social Care Law, or it is in the public interest to process this. In the case of Care Act related matters we may also need to process your bank details in order to provide appropriate services.
If you do not allow us to use your data this will mean that we may not be able to fully assess and meet your care and support needs because we need this information to be able to effectively respond.
