Website tracking

Posted by: annamorton - Posted on:

We are aware of recent reports in the media concerning a number of NHS Trust websites utilising covert tracking software (Meta Pixel) that resulted in patient data being compromised. Browsing data was collected from a number of NHS Trust websites and shared with Facebook, the data collected could then be matched to a user’s IP address, enabling it to be linked to an individual. The Information Commissioner’s Office is investigating. See here for more information: NHS data breach: trusts shared patient details with Facebook without consent | Health | The Guardian

We have engaged with our website providers. Confirmation that tracking tools are NOT used has been given. You can access this using the following link
