Licensed data from NHS Digital

Wilmington Healthcare processes record level, pseudonymised*, non-sensitive, Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DIDs) and Mental Health Services Dataset (MHSDS) under license from NHS Digital.

All Wilmington Healthcare solutions that incorporate these datasets are small number suppressed in line with the HES Analysis guide. These datasets are stored and processed securely in line with ISO27001:2013 standards.

The data are being used in the delivery of tools or bespoke analysis solutions to support the NHS either directly or indirectly through non-NHS organisations. These solutions are provided to offer services for commissioners, providers and NHS suppliers that use the data analysis and service modelling to deliver improved service delivery and improved patient outcomes.

Fair processing

The Data Protection Act 1998 requires organisations to process personal data fairly and lawfully. The methods by which these processes are governed and explained to patients are known as ‘fair processing’.
