Why and how we process your data in the Profile Information Management System (PIMS), and your rights.
|How we use the information (processing activities)||

PIMs information is displayed on the NHS.UK website and syndicated to third parties. To get editing rights to their profiles, staff members can contact the NHS.UK service desk to become PIMS profile editors, but will need to provide their name, email address, organisation and job title.
