What happens to your personal data?

The information that you share with us stays within a dedicated computer system and is stored on a specialist client database called PCMIS. This information does not stay within our website and submitted referrals are not stored within the website environment or with any other third party.

Referrals are transmitted directly into our database which is only accessible to authorised CHUMS personnel. This ensures that personal data is stored safely and securely in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. This is only accessed and used by our team to plan and monitor CHUMS support.

On occasions we may need to share information with other professionals without your permission. We only do this if we are concerned about the safety of the person being referred or the safety of someone else because of the actions of the person being referred. Should this be the case we will always try to discuss this with you first and involve you in the process.

By completing the referral form you are agreeing to the above.
