Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. The NHS want to use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. They would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help them provide a full picture. This will allow them to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so they can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure they provide the best care possible for everyone. How your information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy. They need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choice you have.

You have the right to prevent confidential information about you from being shared or used for any purpose other than providing your care, except in special circumstances. If you do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside the GP practice, ask us to make a note of this in your medical record. This will prevent your confidential information being used other than where necessary by law. You will also be able to restrict the use of information held by other places you receive care, such as hospitals and community services. You should let the surgery know if you want to restrict the use of information. YOUR CHOICE WILL NOT AFFECT THE CARE YOU RECEIVE.

Further information can be obtained from the HSCIC website: www.hscic.gov.uk or www.nhs.uk/caredata or pick up a leaflet from the surgery.

This extraction of data is due to begin November 2013
