Purpose of processing

We process your data to allow us to understand where a patient’s referral has come from and to liaise with you about the details of the referral or application for a small grant, as well as ensuring we have appropriate consent in place.

What information we need

We will need:

  • Your name and work contact details
  • Details of your employment (e.g. employing hospital and job title)

Legal basis and why we need the information

Our legal basis for collecting and processing the data is our legitimate interests so we can provide the service required by the patient or their family.

We rely on the contractual basis for legally processing data in relation to small grant applications as processing this data is necessary for the terms of grant funding (contractual necessity). If this information is not given, we may not be able to provide the service.

In order to provide the Day One service to the patient and family you have referred to us, we may share the data with the following (depending upon the services provided):

  • NHS Trusts within the West Yorkshire Major Trauma Network.
  • Day One Partners (such as hotels, taxi companies, legal panellist, Citizens Advice – Leeds, etc)
