CAMHS Training and Research

We may ask if we can use patient information for training or research. If we do, we will always explain how we would like to use it and will ask for permission first. Where possible, information is made anonymous before it is used for training or research.

Audit and Evaluation

Services also collect figures and statistics. This is called audit and evaluation and helps us find out whether a service is working well.

This information is made anonymous when it is collected. This means that no one knows who the patients were. Therefore we don’t generally seek permission if we use information in this way.
