Most of the council's information sharing will be defined by legislation or statutory guidance but we also take further steps to protect your personal data.
In 2010, GCC worked closely with partner agencies to develop the Gloucestershire Information Sharing Partnership Agreement (GISPA) which brings together consistent sharing practices between police, health and other organisations within Gloucestershire. You can learn more about the GISPA on the GCC website.
The police, regulators and other investigators
The council's Information Management Service (IMS) acts as a single point of contact (SPOC) for formal enquiries from the police and other investigators where there isn't a joint working arrangement already in place.
IMS may also receive requests for information from statutory bodies and regulators (e.g. OFSTED, CQC). There is often a legal obligation what we share data with these organisations.
