How sharing information in your medical records can help the NHS to provide better care
Using information about the care you have received, enables those involved in providing care and health services to improve the quality of care and health services for all. The role of the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)
is to ensure that high quality information is used appropriately to improve patient care.
NHS England has therefore commissioned a programme of work on behalf of the NHS, public health and social care services to address gaps in information. Our aim is to ensure that the best possible evidence is available to improve the quality of care for all.
Starting in January 2014, all of our patients will receive a leaflet giving more detail about the process. You will find a link to the leaflet below.
If after reading the information you do not want your data to be used in this way, please contact the reception team for an "Opt out " form.
