Data Sharing and Governance

The documents in this section are information for those who are integrating welfare advice services into NHS settings, particularly general practice, but can be adapted for other settings.

The WAHP Partnership Agreement sets out the working arrangements between the advice service and general practice. This agreement must be supported by a Data Sharing Agreement, Privacy Policy and Explicit Consent form which are also included here.

These documents should be developed in partnership with the appropriate NHS Board Caldecott Guardian and the GP and Advice Service leads for information governance.
