Information about how the council shares data between services.
Sharing your information
In many cases when you give your personal information to the council there will be no need to share it.
On other occasions, we will need to share your personal information with another department or organisation. For example to deliver a service you require or to ensure your welfare and protection.
Sometimes we will need to ask you for your consent to share your information. But at other times it will be considered reasonable to share without your consent. If we do need to ask for your consent you will be given the option to say no. We will explain why we are sharing your information and who with, apart from in a few situations when the law permits otherwise.
The Humber Information Sharing Charter [PDF, 119Kb] provides a framework for the effective and secure sharing of information across the Humber region. For a list of organisations signed up to the Humber Information Sharing Charter please see the Information Sharing section on the North East Lincolnshire Council Information website.
For more information please see the Information Commissioner’s website.
If you are not happy with any aspect of how we have shared your information please see our Information Complaints page.

All NHS organisations and local authorities which provide social services must have a Caldicott Guardian. For further information see the Caldicott Guardian page on Gov.UK
There are seven principles and they are specific to Health and Social Care Services. Our Caldicott Plan [PDF, 101Kb] provides further information.
