South London and Maudsley NHS Trust 'Information Sharing Protocol' and consent.

The request was successful.

Dear South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust,

South London and Maudsley NHS Trust 'Information Sharing Protocol' and consent.

I understand there is an 'Information Sharing Protocol' regarding clients' personal and confidential information, between most NHS trusts and selected outside agencies, including local authority Social Services, Social Landlords and some other agencies.

I have managed to find a copy of an 'Information Sharing Protocol' template online, but no protocols that have been adopted by specific NHS Trusts.

Please could you provide me with a copy of the 'Information Sharing Protocol' adopted by the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and references to the appropriate Trust Board Meeting where this protocol was adopted?

Could you please provide me with the policy and process for eliciting consent to share personal and confidential information from individual 'clients' with other agencies within the context of the 1998 Data Protection Act.

Could you also provide me with contact details of the current Data Controller for the South London and Maudsley NHS trust in Lambeth.

Many thanks

Yours faithfully,

Angie Meader
