Information on how will we use the information and data we collect, for families involved in our projects. Taken from our ‘Looking after your information’ info sheet.
“This project is part of the Better Start Bradford programme. We need to collect information from this project to find out how it is helping you and your family. This information will help us to understand the best way to support other families in Bradford, and across the country too.
What information will be shared and how will it be used?
All information collected by this project will be shared with Better Start Bradford. This will include your and your child’s NHS number, name, address, phone number, date of birth, ethnicity, religion, and disability if relevant. It will also include the answers you give in any project questionnaires and how many times you were seen by the project team.
Some of this information will be available to approved staff from our other Better Start Bradford projects, but it will only be looked at if there is an important reason to do so.
Access to your information will be controlled by our Better Start Bradford Innovation Hub, which is a partnership between us and Born in Bradford, based at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Innovation Hub will use your information to find out how our projects have helped families in Bradford. To keep your identity safe, you will be given a project number. Only approved members of the Better Start Bradford Innovation Hub team will be able to identify you from this. Every member of this team has a legal duty to keep your information private and safe.
Approved members of the project team and/or the Innovation Hub may need to look up your NHS number. This will help us to find out if you go to any other Better Start Bradford projects.
Anonymous information from everyone who gets involved in our projects will be used to make reports for Better Start Bradford and our partners. Reports may also be published in scientific journals and the press. These reports will never include information that could identify you or your child.
Better Start Bradford may share your name and contact details with our other projects which we think you may benefit from. We will not share your personal information with anyone outside of the Better Start Bradford programme.
If you do not want your information to be shared with us, please let the project team or our Innovation Hub know. You will still be able to get involved in our projects.”
