Sexual Health Services Survey

Closed 5 May 2019

Opened 9 Apr 2019

Overview

Thank you for accessing this online survey about the integrated sexual health service in West Sussex. We value your opinions about the service and your experiences of it. We appreciate that disclosure of matters related to sexual health are sensitive, but we would like to understand the level of public awareness about the services on offer.  We would also like your feedback on what could be done to help improve the services or make them easier to use. 

 

Why We Are Consulting

Data Protection/Privacy notice for this online survey

This survey is confidential. This notice explains what data we will collect, how it will be used, and how we manage your data to ensure your confidentiality.

The Children Families and Working Age Adults Commissioning Team will use this survey to collect demographic information: this is information about whether you live or work in West Sussex and other personal characterisitcs protected under The Equality Act 2010. This information will be processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations, the 2018 Data Protection Act, and any subsequent data protection legislation. Your responses can be provided at a broad level. You can choose not to provide this information by selecting “prefer not to answer”.

However, the small amount of data we are requesting will be used to carry out a task in the public interest and in the exercise of official authority vested in the County Council.  It will be used to help plan sexual health services, to help ensure everyone has equal opportunity of access to these, and to help identify any gaps in service provision, so please consider this when answering.

Your responses will be collected in a spreadsheet that will be stored on an encrypted hard drive owned by West Sussex County Council.  Only nominated members of our research team will be able to access this file. The file itself will be deleted after February 2020. We will need to keep the information for this long while reports are created to summarise your responses along with those of other people who choose to participate.

The results will be summarised in a report so that no individual can be identified.  The report will be used to inform the future provision of services. The key points will be added to a revised version of the West Sussex Sexual Health Needs Assessment, which was first published in February 2019.

West Sussex County Council is registered as Data Controller (Reg. No. Z6413427). For further details and information about the way the County Council processes data as a Data Controller, please see www.westsussex.gov.uk/privacy-policy.
