How long we keep your information

All patient records are retained and ultimately destroyed in accordance with the NHS Records Retention Schedule, which sets out the appropriate length of time each type of NHS record should be retained.

The Trust does not keep patient records for longer than necessary and all records are destroyed confidentially once their retention period has been met, and the Trust has made the decision that the records are no longer required.

Employment records are also retained and ultimately destroyed in accordance with this Schedule.
