The Vaccine Enquiry Service is managed on behalf of the Sussex Health and Care Partnership by Sussex NHS Commissioners. The Data Protection Officer for Sussex NHS Commissioners can be contacted by email at SXCCG.IG@nhs.net (mark for the attention of the DPO).
Any personal data you provide to the Vaccine Enquiry Service will be processed solely to enable us to respond to your enquiries about the Covid-19 vaccination programme. If you contact us by email, that will include your email address, and for most enquiries there will be no need to provide anything further. The Service may sometimes ask, as part of responding to your enquiry, for further information, or if it can share your information with other agencies able to help. Where this is the case, we will always explain what this information is, who any agencies are and why the information is needed and obtain your clear permission before you are asked to provide any data and before any of your data is shared.
The lawful basis for the processing of any personal data by the Vaccine Enquiry Service is UK GDPR Articles 6(1)(e) and 9(2)(h).
Any personal data you provide to the Vaccine Enquiry Service will be stored securely and accessible only by members of the Sussex NHS Commissioners’ Vaccine Enquiry Service. Data will be retained for one year.
You can exercise any of your rights in respect of your personal data – including the rights of access, rectification, and erasure – by contacting the Sussex NHS Commissioners Data Protection Officer using the details provided above.
If you have any concerns about our use of your personal information, you can contact the Sussex NHS Commissioners Data Protection Officer using the details provided above. You can also complain to the ICO if you are unhappy with how we have used your data.
