How information about you helps provide better care.
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so you are provided with the best care possible.
Your 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.
You have a choice as to whether or not your information can be used. If you are happy then you need take no further action. However, if you do not wish your information to be used please speak with one of our reception staff.
Below is some documentation which you may find helpful and a website link for further information.
