GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

Families And Babies Guarantee

Families and Babies is aware of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and we have updated our data policies to ensure we comply.

Below you will find some information about the new GDPR legislation:

Why do we hold data?

To fulfil our commissioned service specifications, as an organisation we are required to collect personal data from mothers birthing at local hospital trusts who have initiated breastfeeding.

This information is used by FAB to offer breastfeeding support.

Anonymised data from FAB is shared with the local authority, in order to understand local needs in local communities.

What do we hold?

We record personal contact details including the mother’s name, address, and telephone number.

We record support given at key stages, which includes; type of support given (i.e., hospital, home visit, telephone), brief summary of discussion, baby’s date of birth, and feeding methods at key stages from birth to 6 weeks.

We may also collect the mother’s age, ethnicity, and smoking status to help with anonymous statistical information for commissioners.

How do we store data?

Information is stored on a secure, encrypted database, and paper records are disposed of using a confidential waste system.

  • Request a copy of your personal information
