How we use personal information we collect

We will only use your personal data for the purposes and legal bases set out in the table attached click here to access.  It is important that your health records are accurate and up-to-date as they will help make sure that any staff looking after you are able to provide you with the care that you require.

We will store your personal data only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected; as required by law or regulatory guidance to which we are subject, and for the exercise or defence of legal claims that may be brought by or against us.

In line with best practice the NMH references the HSE Retention Policy with regard to the recommended retention period for medical data to satisfy the requirements of the GDPR.
