Privacy notice - Public Health planning


This privacy notice covers what kind of information we hold about the public, the ways we use it and the reasons for doing so, and what rights you have in connection with the information that we hold.

All local authorities have a duty to improve the health of the population they serve. To help us do this we use data and information from a range of sources including the Office for National Statistics, NHS Digital, local hospitals and Clinical Commissioning Groups. We use this information to evaluate the nature and causes of disease and ill-health in the area, to plan health, social care and public health services, and to protect and improve public health. We are bound by a number of information sharing agreements which are drawn up to ensure that information is only received, processed and shared in a lawful way.

East Sussex County Council takes data protection seriously. Please be assured that your information will be used appropriately in line with data protection legislation, will be stored securely and will not be processed unless the requirements for fair and lawful processing can be met.
