Please note, we are currently aware of the issue opening files on our website and working to resolve this as soon as possible.

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 was published by the Department for Communities and Local Government in February 2015. The Code sets out key principles for local authorities in creating greater transparency through the publication of public data. The Code sets out a mandatory and recommended set of data for publication. The data subjects listed below are taken from the Code.

Fair processing statement

NHS England, the Royal College General Practitioners and Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) in England work together to ensure preventative resources are offered to those who may benefit most. This is achieved by referrals and the sharing of information (where relevant, proportionate and necessary) to allow fire service personnel to undertake Home Fire Safety visits. If you require more information about how NHS England use and share your information, click here.

Research has shown that those at high risk from fire death and injury, are those who are most likely to impact on a range of NHS services. Home Fire Safety visits are developed between local health practitioners and FRS's to meet local health risk priorities. They therefore represent an intervention which can improve people's quality of life, while reducing demand on critical services.

The majority of fire deaths in the UK occur amongst the elderly population. However, older people are most vulnerable to fire and a number of other risks. A Home Fire Safety visit from the FRS is proven to make them safer and can reduce risk significantly across a range of factors.

In one area of the United Kingdom where this work has been piloted since 2007, there has been a very significant reduction in fire deaths and injuries which has developed into a current trend well below the national average. So we know this work can save many lives.

The FRS and NHS will continue to work together in the future to ensure the visits undertaken by the FRS are effective in helping to make people safe.
