Information Collection

NHS Western Isles is the sole owner of the information collected on our website.

Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.


Our website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that NHS Western Isles is not responsible for the privacy practices of any other sites. Links to sites are provided for informational purposes only and no responsibility is accepted for the quality of resources to be found on such websites. The contents and material made available on linked sites are completely outwith our control and as such no liability is accepted for any damages resulting from accessing or failing to access these sites. No endorsement is expressed or implied by the presence of a link on the NHS Western Isles website. The contents of a linked-to website may change without our knowledge and as a result, links may break or may terminate on pages which were not the original targets of a link. No responsibility or liability for the privacy of personal information is accepted for linked-to websites, as these are outwith our control.


The resources contained on the NHS Western Isles website, including all files that are authorised for public and password-protected download or access, are provided on an 'as is' basis and without any warranties. Although files are virus checked these cannot guarantee that files are free from computer viruses and no warranty is given that files downloaded or accessed from the NHS Western Isles website are free of computer viruses. No warranties are made as to fitness for purpose, quality or completeness of information. NHS Western Isles excludes any liability for any errors in or omissions in information provided on or linked to from this website.


From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as postal code). Contact information will not be shared with any third parties unless we give prior notice and choice.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as postal code, phone, email or postal address), we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally identifiable information. This can be done via our feedback form.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via email or by posting a notice on our website for 30 days.

Availability of the NHS Western Isles website

Although the NHS Western Isles website has been tested and should work correctly under normal circumstances, there are many factors both within and outside of the control of NHS Western Isles which may prevent the website from being available to users of the world-wide-web. No responsibility is accepted by NHS Western Isles for any losses that may arise from an inability to access resources on this site. Where a user finds a specific error in the coding of a webpage, or where he/she considers a page to be in breach of accessibility, it is a condition of use of this site that the NHS Western Isles webmaster be notified in order that appropriate action may be taken.
