Some members of staff use CCTV in the form of Body Worn Video Cameras and fixed cameras.
What is CCTV and Body Worn Video?
CCTV is used for maintaining the security of property and premises and for preventing and investigating crime, it may also be used to monitor staff when carrying out work duties. For these reasons the information processed may include visual images, personal appearance and behaviours. This information may be about staff, customers and clients, offenders and suspected offenders, members of the public and those inside, entering or in the immediate vicinity of the area under surveillance. Where necessary or required this information is shared with the data subjects themselves, employees and agents, services providers, police forces, security organisations and persons making an enquiry.
What do we use CCTV / BWV for?
CCTV is used for crime prevention, monitoring and training. As the patient, you can, at any time, request to not be identifiable within the video recording(s). Although the camera will still continue to record the situation, the video will be made anonymous.
What happens to the images?
Images are stored in line with the Data Protection Act and in line with our registration with the ICO.
We are currently reviewing the CCTV policy – we will put the policy here when it has been reviewed.
