Can a Member’s data be shared with third parties in an emergency such as a doctor or hospital i.e. providing address, date of birth and any medical information?

The Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) enables the sharing of sensitive personal information in the event of an emergency – i.e. where the sharing is necessary in order to protect the ‘vital interests’ of the person.

You must follow any data protection requirements, guidance or processes established by your Scout Group, District, County/Area/Region (Scotland) to ensure such sharing is done in accordance with the Data Protection Act and GDPR. For example, the sharing must be done securely, and only share the information required to assist with the emergency.
