NHS Data Care Record


NHS England


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



If you have any concerns or wish to prevent

this from happening, please speak to our

practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of

the leaflet:


“How information about you helps us to

             provide better care”.
