A Directory of Members is circulated to the members of The Middlesex Hospital Nurses’ Benevolent Fund every 5 years. A member may opt out of this, either on the application form or at any time afterwards.
Access to data is held securely and restricted to relevant members of the Committee.
The Trustees of the Middlesex Hospital Nurses' Benevolent Fund (MHNBF) are committed to being fully compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into effect on 25th May 2018.
Data is stored and managed securely.
When a nurse has completed the form to become a member of the MHNBF this gives permission for Data to be stored securely and has therefore ‘opted in’ as per the GDPR (2018).
The Data we hold is the name, address, e-mail, the years in training or years on the staff at The Middlesex Hospital, and payment details of members.
The reason we hold this Data is in order to stay in touch with members and send the annual Journal, which also invites the member to attend our Annual General Meeting. Data may also be used in connection with matters of benevolence.
The Data will be held by the Trustees in an encrypted and password protected manner. We do not share this information with any other organisation.
When a member’s details are no longer required, they will be deleted from the database. Historic membership records are held in the archives.
If you have any questions or would like further information please contact us through the Contact Us page.
