This Trust will soon be taking part in a national survey to find out what patients think about their stroke care.
All NHS stroke patients who received treatment and/or therapy between 16/05/22 and 16/09/22 will receive a copy of the survey.
This is part of a national programme to improve stroke patients’ experiences.
Taking part is voluntary
The survey will be carried out by an independent company, under a signed agreement with NHS England in partnership with the Stroke Association.
Section 251 support has been recommended by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care following advice from the Confidentiality Advisory Group (CAG), who are an independent advisory group which includes lay representation. This allows Trusts to share your details without your consent.
Regulation 5 of the 2002 Control of Patient Information Regulations provides a lawful basis for confidential patient information to be processed for medical purposes. If you have opted out via the National Data Opt Out, your information will not be disclosed by your Trust.
