Health & Social Care Information Service
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve services. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked to other health information.
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, please ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care".
