As an NHS organisation, we take the Freedom of Information Act and the Data Protection Act extremely seriously and personal data will never be used for anything other than the primary reason it was gathered.

We have a student coursework management policy for your assessment submissions.

Anonymity and confidentiality in assessment

The Trust has a confidentiality and anonymity policy which gives examples of breaches of confidentiality and anonymity, and the penalties for these breaches.

We expect our students to comply with the data protection act if you are writing about people or organisations in your assignments.

For help and guidance on anonymising your work, please see our anonymisation and confidentiality in your writing guide on Moodle.
