Care.data

Your information can help to provide better care.

Information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve medical services.

Your care information along with your NHS number and postcode, but not your name, is shared by a secure system and used by healthcare staff to provide information to improve your NHS care and treatment.  This secure system is called care.data and will extract this information from the practice database.

Your choice

If you are happy for your care information to be used to improve NHS service, you do not have to do anything.

However, if you have concerns or do not wish for your data to be included, please contact the surgery to discuss this further.

More information can be found at 

www.nhs.uk/caredata

or via the leaflet and poster.  Please note that these are available to view in the surgery.
