This page explains how we will use and protect any information about you that you give us when you visit this website. To see how any personal information about you is treated you can also read this pdf Your information NHS Norwich CCG Fair Processing Notice (429 KB)

This privacy statement only covers NHS Norwich CCG's website. It does not cover sites that can be linked to from here, so you should always be aware when you are moving to another site and read the privacy statement on that site. NHS Norwich CCG does not take responsibility for the content of websites other than this website, including any other websites available via a link from this website.

Information about you might be collected in two ways:
  • if you send us information directly
  • cookies, which enable us to improve your experience of using our website and also enable us to monitor information about how our website is being used
What happens when you send us information

If you submit personal information about yourself via our website (for example your name and email address) that information will only be used by us, and will not be disclosed unless:

  • We are obliged by law to do so.
  • You ask us to
  • You raise an issue which needs to be investigated, in which case we may need to pass your information to the PALS service or to the provider of that service

If you contact us and specifically do not want your information shared with an NHS service provider then please let us know.

If we wish to write about you or place a photograph of you on our website we will ask for your written permission first. You can revoke permission if you so choose.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files located in browser directories. When you visit a site that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your PC. The next time you visit that site, your PC checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant (that is, one containing the site name) and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the site. The site then 'knows' that you have been there before, and in some cases, tailors what pops up on screen to take account of that fact.

Are cookies good or bad?

They are beneficial because they can record preferences and store data (e.g. what's in your online shopping cart). They can make sites easier to navigate and create a more personal browsing experience. The negative aspect of cookies is that information about you, however benign, is collected and stored by a website and can be used to market services to you or shared with a third party who may wish to do the same.
