Assuring Transformation Data Set
Why and how we process your data in the Assuring Transformation Data Set, and your rights.
|How we use the information (processing activities)||
We collect information about people with a learning disability, autism or both who are being cared for or treated in a hospital. This information is used to tell how many people are in hospital, how long they have been in hospital for, when their care and treatment is checked and what hospital they are in. This is to ensure people are not in hospital, if they would be better looked after in the community.
