It would be helpful when you make a referral to let the patient know about the personal data that we will collect in order to provide the service to them and the ways in which Royal Voluntary Service will store that data and keep it safe. You can do this by sharing the leaflet Supported individual privacy information which is available to print or email. A more detailed Privacy Notice can be found here.
