How long do we hold information for?

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.
