Reply To: Receiving sensitive information from a local council

Becky Clark

Hi Claire, I’ve not had this level of information shared with us without parent knowledge and agree this shouldn’t be happening. Unless they have some specific consent to allow them to send an EHCP out to possible providers…? But you would expect security measures to be in place for emailing the doc of course. Usually I find the LAs are careful, though occasionally someone sends/ or has called me and shared info on the phone. I suspect it depends on the particular case officer. I imagine ICO would recommend feeding back to the organisation to help them tighten things up! BW, Becky
