Information sharing with the Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs)

Privacy notice

The Health and Social Care Partnerships work closely together to improve people's experience of services and give them the support they need to live safe, healthy lives in their own communities.

While consent will not be required for the sharing of information between NHS Ayrshire & Arran and each of the three Ayrshire Local Authorities for the purpose of delivering integrated Health and Social care services, you will be informed about how your information will be collected, held and shared. This will ensure that we can deliver co-ordinated care that is easy to access and is focused on the best outcome for you. In addition, the Health and Social Care Partnership may be required to share personal data with other public bodies where required by law, for the prevention or detection of crime or the protection of children and vulnerable adults.

Any use of personal data will be in full accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
