NHS Patient Survey Programme (NPSP) & National Registries
The NHS uses your information for the NHS Patient Survey Programme. We do not ask for patients consent for this as the NHS has obtained from the Health Research Authority (HRA) under Section 251 of the NHS Act 2006 which provides an alternative to gaining your consent under the common law duty of confidentiality. If you are using the services of Milton Keynes University NHS Foundation Trust then your contact information may be used for the purpose of the NPSP. This is a task carried out under the public interest and you may opt-out of this by contacting us on the number below. Your data is used to produce anonymised reports by the survey which help us to make service improvements.
National Registries (such as the Learning Disabilities Register) have statutory permission under Section 251 of the NHS Act 2006, to collect and hold service user identifiable information without the need to seek consent from each individual data subject
Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
