Your Data and the NHS: How Information about you helps the NHS to provide better care…



Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered.

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 ask at

reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information

about you helps us to provide better care”.
