Patient Shared Information within the NHS - Care Data


NHS  Englandyour care data


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

If you are happy for your information to be used in this way

you do not have to do anything.

If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening,

please speak to practice staff or follow the links below for a copy of the

leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”.
