NHS England/ Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)
- 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 your 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".

More information can be found here

Protecting Your Information

We ask for information about yourself so that you can receive the best possible care and treatment.  We keep this information, together with details of your care, to ensure that your doctor or nurse has accurate and up to date information.  It also may be needed if we see you again.  We only use or pass information about you to people who have a genuine need for it.  Whenever we can we shall remove details that identify you as an individual.

Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information.  If at any time you would like to know more about how we use your information you can speak to the Practice Manager or for further information please refer to the leaflets held at reception entitled “Your Medical Records, Protecting Your Information”.
