Data Sharing

How information about you helps us to provide better care

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 system 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 to opt out of this sharing of your data , if you are happy about  your data being used you need not take any action however if you have any 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”.
