New CAREDATA options with your NHS medical records

Information about you helps the NHS to provide you with 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 anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, you can download a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care” below or contact reception and ask for opt-out form.

You can find out more on the NHS England Care Data website
