The Disability Services Department offers a confidential service to all disabled students and staff.
In practice this means that:
We will not disclose anything about the nature or content of your contact with Disability Services to anyone outside the Service, unless you agree that we do so (other than when there is imminent, grave danger to you or to someone else, or when we are required to do so by law).
If we contact schools, departments, colleges, examination boards, human resources or anyone else on your behalf we will only do so with your full consent.
When a third party has made a referral to Disability Services we will not disclose any further information to the referrer without the knowledge and consent of the person concerned.
We will keep all student and staff records confidential to the Service and will not allow anyone outside the Service to access any records without your written consent or except when required to do so by law (you have right of access to your own record under the Data Protection Act 1998).
