Security of information

Confidentiality affects everyone: Medway Community Healthcare C.I.C. collects, stores and uses large amounts of personal data every day, such as medical or personal records which may be paper-based or held on a computer.

We take our duty to protectyour personal information and confidentiality very seriously and arecommitted to taking appropriate measures to ensure it is held securely and only accessed by those with a need to know.

At executive level, we have appointed a Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) who is accountable for the management of all our information systems and the data they hold. The SIRO also makes sure that any associated risks or incidents are documented and investigated appropriately. We also have a Caldicott Guardian who has particular responsibility for providing advice on protecting patient confidentiality and sharing patients’ information securely when appropriate.
