How do we use cookies?

The Trust uses cookies to help us understand how people use our websites.

They enable us to capture information about the behaviour of users on our websites, for example which pages are accessed the most, how long people spend on each page and what links they used to access the information they are seeking.

We access this information through a third party platform called Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web and traffic analytics tool that tracks the behaviour of visitors to our website and provides the Trust with anonymous data to better understand how people use our websites. We use this data to make improvements to our websites to help visitors access the information they require with ease. See here for more information about Google cookies.

We may also use cookies to enable our websites to ‘remember’ details that you voluntarily give, such as auto-filling online forms, so you do not have to retype information each time you use the website.

This information obtained through the use of cookies is anonymous and not shared with anyone outside of the organisation.

By using websites managed by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, you are implying consent for these cookies to be place on your computer.
