Your Data Matters
Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.
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 we provide the best care possible for everyone.
Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments.
In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened.
The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
You Have A Choice.
You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.
If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.
