Your care may at times be provided by several health and care professionals from one or more organisations through an MDT (multi-disciplinary team) in which they will come together to discuss how best to care for you. Information will need to be shared between them so that they have the information they need to provide you with the best care. There is a legal duty on organisations to share your information for your individual care where it is lawful to do so, unless you object.
All organisations involved in the MDT have a duty to ensure your information is used and shared safely. These organisations must make information easily available to you (e.g. on their websites and in privacy notices) that explains how your information may be used, why this is lawful and what rights you have to object. If you are unsure what information is being shared about you, or someone you are responsible for, you can ask health and care organisations to explain this.
