Care.Data Records Extraction
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so that the best possible care can be provided 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 need to make a choice.
If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not have to do anything.
If you have any concerns or are not happy for your information to be shared please speak to a member of the practice staff, ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care" or click on the link below for more information to help you make a choice.
