Privacy policy

The Data Protection Act

Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We will only use your information for the purpose we have described and we do not pass on your details to any third party or government department unless you give us permission to do so. We use leading technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.


You can send us your feedback by using the enquiry form.

Enquiry form

When you submit any comments using the enquiry form, they are read by a member of the North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust communications team, who may record the information on a database and will contact you regarding your query if this has been requested. This information is not passed on to anyone else.

Session cookies

Cookies are pieces of data created when you visit a website. The cookies our site uses are "session cookies", which means that your "preferences" are stored temporarily while you move around the site. You can set your computer not to accept cookies. However, if you do this, you may not be able to use some site features because we need to record your preferences in order to give you the information you need during your visit.

Session cookies are deleted when you leave the site. They do not contain any personal information about you, and do not hold any information about which sites you visited before

What happens when I click on a link to another website?

North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides links to other websites that it believes may be of interest to you. These links may be to other NHS departments, government websites and/or other non-government organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our site and not sites that you link to from this website, therefore we recommend that you should always be aware when you are browsing to another site and read the privacy statement of any site which collects personal information.

We do not pass on any personal information you have given us to any other site.

Changes to this privacy policy

Any changes to this privacy policy will be updated here, therefore reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we will share it with other parties.
