Care Data

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS

Under the Health & Social Care Act 2012, NHS England will shortly be able to direct the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) to collect and link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service to help provide the NHS with a full picture.

This information will allow the NHS to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so they can see what has worked best.

It is important that the NHS can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients.

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared in a secure system, on HSCIC national servers and not on GP systems.

Information such as your date of birth, NHS number, gender and post code but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure way, so your identity is protected. This information (which does not reveal your identity) can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure the best possible care is provided for everyone.The HSCIC will be the data controller for your uploaded information and will have total control over it.

Once the data has been extracted, the HSCIC will be the data controller for your uploaded information and Wilson Street Surgery cannot control or protect in any way how that information is used, shared or who has access to it.

You have a choice.

We need to make sure that you know what is happening and the choices you have.

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 download a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”. below or speak to a member of staff at the surgery.

If you wish to opt out and prevent your personal confidential data being extracted for the Health and Social Care Information Centre, you can write to us asking to opt out or alternatively download the Opt Out Form below, complete and sign it and hand it in at Reception.
