NHS England - How Information about You Helps us to Provide Better Care Posted on 10 Aug 2016

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.

This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure sytem where it can be linked with other health information.

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you. You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not need to do anything. If you have concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care". More information can be found at www.nhs.uk/caredata or click on the tab "Information about You" on the left side of the screen.
