Your health information

How your records help the NHS

There may be times that we collected information about you. For example, this could be if you were to make an enquiry to our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) or sign up to our public membership scheme.

These records may include details such as your name and address. It may also contain more sensitive information about your health, including such items as the results of needs assessments.


Your information may be kept in a written form in a locked cabinet, or held electronically, secure on computers.


We may use your information to help assess the health needs of our population in Bedfordshire. This will then allow us to make informed decisions helping us to design and plan health services.

The BCCG fair processing notice provides information about how and when we can use information about you. It will also answer questions about your consent.

Like all NHS organisations, Bedfordshire CCG has a Caldicott Guardian - a senior person responsible for protecting the confidentiality of a patient and service-user information and enabling appropriate information-sharing: ours is Dr Chris Marshall.
