Mental Health Services Data Protection Statement

Pin It

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) would like to understand which mental health services you use, how well those services support you, what could be done better and any barriers to accessing mental health services.

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs have commissioned NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit (MLCSU) to collect, handle and process the responses gathered for this consultation. MLCSU uses a survey tool called Snap which is owned by Snap Surveys Ltd, an organisation specialising in the delivery and management of surveys. Any information you provide will be added to Snap for analysis and handled in accordance with GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.

The survey also asks respondents to provide their full postcode and demographic profiling data (age, gender, ethnicity etc.). This information is used to ensure the responses are representative of the demographics of the whole local population. The postcode data will also be used to profile and segment those participating in this engagement. The data will be available in its entirety to MLCSU, and the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs will be in receipt of some of the responses which will then be inputted into Snap. You do not have to provide this information to take part in the survey.

Any reports published using the insights from the questionnaire will not contain any personal identifiable information and only show feedback in anonymous format. These anonymised results may be shared publicly, for example on NHS public facing websites or printed and distributed.

Your involvement is voluntary, and you are free to stop completing the questionnaire at any time and if you are completing this online you can do so by closing this webpage.  Only submitted responses will be included in the analysis. You can also refuse to answer questions in this survey, should you wish. All information collected via the survey will be held for a period of five years from the date of survey closure, in line with the Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care 2016, which all NHS organisations work under.
