Healthy Child Programme – Public Consultation

This Privacy Notice is designed to help you understand how and why the Health Child Programme – Public Consultation processes your personal data. This notice should be read in conjunction with the Council’s Corporate Privacy Notice.

Who are we?

North Yorkshire County Council is a ‘Data Controller’ as defined by Article 4(7) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) is responsible for commissioning the Healthy Child Programme (HCP), which encompasses Health Visiting (0-5) and School Nursing (5-19) services, and is a preventative child and family health promotion programme for children whose aim it is to:

“Ensure that every child gets the good start they need to lay the foundations of a healthy life”

This consultation is to obtain views on

  1. The proposed service model;
  2. NYCC formalising a partnership with Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, whom NYCC already works very closely with to design, plan and monitor the services provided by the HCP via a Partnership Agreement (referred to as “Section 75 Partnership Agreement”). This would provide NYCC with a mechanism to formalise arrangements to support improved flexibility and greater efficiency, better integration and, in turn, improve outcomes for children, young people and families.
  3. The final proposed HCP

The Council has appointed Veritau Ltd to be its Data Protection Officer. Their contact details are:

NYCC would like to consult with all key stakeholders to ensure:

  1. They are aware of the new service model
  2. They are aware of our intention to use a section 75 agreement and
  3. To give them opportunity to give feedback on the proposals.

Consultation results will be used to finalise the new service model, the use of the Section 75 Agreement and the final overall proposal which will then be subject to formal decision making across both NYCC and HDFT.

Where participants would like to be kept informed of the progress of the consultation we will ask for further contact details in order to provide them with the requested information. They can opt out of this contact at any time.

Who do we share this information with?

Anonymous results of the consultation will be provided to Public Health (HAS)

Consultation responses and feedback will be collated and reviewed and a summary of the report will be published on NYCC’s and HDFT’s website.

No personal information will be shared by NYCC with external organisations.

During the collection process some external organisations will be collecting data on NYCC’s behalf as they are already running the services which the consultation is examining
