NHS Care.Data Programme
Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, there are important changes which will allow the Health and Social Care Information Centre to collect and share confidential information from medical records.
One of the first changes is the launch of the Care.Data service. The aim of this service is to make better use of the valuable information in medical records to improve the quality of patient care.
Patient Information Leaflet
Please also see the next page on the Care Data system where a patient video has been uploaded to further explain this new programme.

If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not need to do anything. If you do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside the practice, please print and complete the form below, hand it in or send to the surgery and we will amend your records accordingly.
