7.2a Demonstrate that their actions maintain the privacy of the individual. This could include: Using appropriate volume to discuss the care and support of an individual, Discussing the individual’s care and support in a place where others cannot overhear

As discussed in previous sections, the actions you take can both maintain and compromise the privacy of the individuals you care for. For example, by using an appropriate volume to discuss the care and support of an individual and discussing it where others cannot overhear, you are ensuring that an individual’s personal information is kept private.

An individual may not want information they shared with you to be shared with anyone else, so you should not share it with any unauthorised individuals and only share it with any authorised individuals if it is necessary that they know. This will help build up trust with the individual while maintaining their right to privacy of information.
