At NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group we’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELRCCG) has various roles and responsibilities, but a major part of our work involves making sure that:
- contracts are in place with local health service providers;
- routine and emergency NHS services are available to patients;
- those services provide high quality care and value for money; and
- paying those services for the care and treatment they have provided.
This is called “commissioning” and is explained in more detail on our website at https://eastleicestershireandrutlandccg.nhs.uk/about/who-we-are-and-what-we-do/
Accurate, timely and relevant information is essential for our work to help us to design and plan current and future health and care services, evidence and review our decisions and manage budgets.
As a commissioning organisation, our purpose is not to provide direct care and so we do not routinely hold or receive information about patients and service users in relation to care. We do however sometimes hold information from which people can be identified to enable us to fulfil our responsibilities as outlined above and this is explained in our privacy notice.
