Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

NFI

The Trust is a mandatory participant in the Cabinet Office' s National Fraud Initiative (NFI) exercise every 2 years. The NFI matches electronic data within and between public and private sector bodies for the purpose of assisting with the prevention and detection of fraud. Some of your personal data will be collected and used by the Cabinet Office to support this exercise. The data required from participants will be the minimum needed to undertake the matching exercise including name, gender, NI number, bank account and passport number. All data will be stored electronically by the Cabinet Office or by another organisation under contract with the Cabinet Office. It will be held on a secure encrypted, password protected computer system maintained in a secure environment.

 

Both Trust staff and supplier data may be submitted to the National Fraud Initiative on a regular basis. The use of data is carried out with statutory authority under Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014.
