Surveillance camera policy

Document category: Trust wide policy

Document date: June 1, 2021

This policy covers the 2018 Data Protection Act (UK GDPR), the CCTV Code of Practice 2008, and the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice 2013 and is aimed at the use of CCTV and similar surveillance equipment that monitor, and record images from, those areas to which the public have largely unrestricted access.

In addition, areas which have controlled access will also be monitored by the system, in order to assist in the protection of trust assets, general public, patients, visitors and staff. It is also important to note that the Trust manages all data, access to data, and security of the CCTV data is controlled in accordance with the requirements of the 2018 Data Protection Act.
