Better information means better care  

 

NHS England want to improve the quality of care and health services for all. By using information about the care you have received, those involved in providing care and health services can see how well they are doing, and where improvements need to be made.  

      

NHS organisations share information about the care you receive with those who plan health and social care services, as well as with approved researchers and organisations outside the NHS, if this will benefit patient care. As a patient, you may receive care and treatment from a number of places such from ourselves, hospitals and community services. By bringing this information together from all the different places, NHS England can compare the care provided in one area with the care provided in another so that they can see what worked best.

 

NHS England will use information such as your postcode and NHS number  to link your records from these  different places. Records are linked in a secure system so your identity is protected. Details that could identify you will be removed before your information is made available to others, such as those planning NHS services and approved researchers.

NHS England sometimes release confidential information to approved researchers, if this is allowed by law and meets the strict rules that are in place to protect your privacy.

 

If you do not want information about you to be shared outside of the practice you must tell us and we'll make a note of this in your medical record. This note will prevent your confidential information from being used other than in special circumstances.

 

Information from other places where you receive care, such as hospitals and community services, is collected nationally. You should also let us know if you want to prevent the information from those places being shared. We will make a separate note of this in your medical record.
