Most of the information the Trust collects about you is received directly from you. This will be checked with you to ensure that your name, address, telephone number and next of kin, for example, are accurate and up-to-date.
The Trust will, however receive information from other healthcare providers about you. This typically will be from a referral. For example, when you see your GP, if they decide you need an appointment with the Trust, your GP will provide the Trust with your identifiers, contact details, summary of your current complaint and any relevant medical history. If you have been treated at another Hospital and referred to the Trust, the same information would be provided to the Trust.
