4b Consent to Electronic Communications "CONNECT"

If you choose to use Connect - our in house messaging service between members, your profile (ie Fullname or User iD depending on your preferences) will become visible to other members and if you alter your settings to allow incoming messages,  other members will be able to send you messages without you necessarily being able to reply (if the sender has disallowed incoming messages). 

If you choose to use 'Connect' to receive or send messages to other members you must appreciate that the content of any message you send or receive may be sent to the member via their open email and is thus not secure and could be intercepted by unknown third parties.

The management therefore advise that no patient identifiers or confidential information should be sent using Connect unless encrypted using a one time pad or equivalent. For more details on how to use this service see our blog.

Policy statement on working with the Medical device and Pharmaceutical Industry

Haste Academy receives funding and donations from a range of sources including community funding via Haste and grants from Pharmaceutical companies.

The Charity recognises the importance of working collaboratively with all stakeholders with an interest in cardiovascular conditions to ensure an understanding and approach by all to the needs of individuals and families affected by heart and stroke disorders.

Haste Academy has received support from a range of medical device and pharmaceutical companies with an interest in cardiovascular medicine and patient care.   

Whilst we acknowledge that support from medical device and pharmaceutical companies is an important resource, we recognise that partnerships with these companies should be approached with caution.  Haste Academy and Haste Medical do not permit any company with a direct commercial interest to influence its activities.

As a resource for support and information for both patients and medical professionals on heart conditions, we seek to uphold our reputation for integrity, independence, impartiality and transparency in all we do.
