Consultation Questionnaire Data Protection statement

NHS Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS West Leicestershire CCG and NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG would like to understand your views on the services delivered at the three acute hospitals in Leicester, run by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust (UHL). These hospitals are: Leicester Royal Infirmary (LRI), Glenfield Hospital (GH) and Leicester General Hospital (LGH). The consultation is also about services delivered at the midwifery-led unit at St Mary’s Hospital in Melton Mowbray. For further information please see the rest of this document.

NHS Leicester City CCG, NHS West Leicestershire CCG and NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG has 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 by geography, CCG area and the Index of Multiple Deprivation. Participants’ health, wellbeing and lifestyle will also be compared with the local population using the Acorn Profiler tool. The data will be available in its entirety to MLCSU, and NHS Leicester City CCG, NHS West Leicestershire CCG and NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG 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.
