CPD-Apply - Privacy Statement
This is the Privacy Statement for the CPD-Apply on-line system, accessible at www.cpd-applynw.nhs.uk

CPD-Apply is provided to you by Health Education North West and its sub-contractor Wirral Health Informatics Service (WHIS). Health Education North West is registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner (registration number Z5454541) and is therefore able to securely accept and hold information which you may send to us while you use CPD-Apply.
  • Sending Applications:
    There are various facilities within this web site which allow you to send information to us, most notably the application form. While you use the form, your session is encrypted (scrambled) so that when you submit it to us it cannot easily be read by anyone who might intercept it.

    Once you have submitted your application, the details will be securely viewed by the relevant manager and/or CPD Lead at your Trust and also by the University or HEI to which you have applied.

    Your information in CPD-Apply may also be seen by authorised personnel at Health Education North West, for reporting purposes, and by WHIS for systems maintenance, development and diagnostic purposes.

    We will only use your information held in CPD-Apply in order to facilitate your application and will not pass your information to any other party, unless we are required by law to release it other legal bodies.

  • Managing Applications (Trusts and HEIs):
    You will need to sign-in to CPD-Apply in order to view and approve applications and to produce reports. While you are signed in, your session is encrypted (scrambled) so that it cannot easily be read by anyone who might intercept it.

    You should, however, be careful to protect the privacy of those applicants whose records you are able to view. Please be sure to sign out of CPD-Apply as soon as you have finished what you were doing. And please be sure never to divulge your sign-in details to anyone else. If someone else needs a sign-in, they just need to apply for access.
If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Statement, please e-mail Midlands & Lancashire CSU at mlcsu.appsdev 'at' nhs.net
