How long do we hold information for?

Information that has been held previously by Coastal West Sussex, Crawley and Horsham and Mid Sussex CCGs is transferring to the new CCG (West Sussex CCG) on 1 April 2020.

The new CCG will become the new data controller. Any questions about the use of data (including patient data) by the new CCG should be directed to sxccg.ig@nhs.net.

For more information about West Sussex CCG handles your data, please see "your information".

The Coastal West Sussex CCG website is no longer updated.

All records held by the CCG will be kept for the duration specified by national guidance from NHS Digital.

Once information that we hold has been identified for destruction it will be disposed of in the most appropriate way for the type of information it is.

Personal confidential and commercially sensitive information will be disposed of by approved and secure confidential waste procedures.

We keep a record of retention schedules within our information asset registers, in line with the Records Management Code of Practice for Health and Social Care 2016.
