    1. Does your Trust have a plan or strategy in place to limit and discourage the use of consumer messaging apps (e.g. WhatsApp) within the Trust? – the Trust has policies in place for the use of internet, apps and other technology to ensure that staff are aware of their responsibilities in respect of data protection.  The Trust does not have a specific policy for eg whatsapp, but expects staff to abide by the Trust policies if using such apps.
