CARE.DATA/Patients Advice on getting their Detailed Medical Records

CARE.DATA

CARE.DATA

All households should have received a leaflet called "Better Information Means Better Care" over the earlier part of this year.

By using information about the care patients receive, those who are involved in providing care and health services can see how well they are doing, and where improvments need to be made. This will help to improve the quality of care and health services for all.

Patients have the opportunity to opt out, which would prevent confidential information about themselves from being shared or used for any purpose other than providing care.

If you do nothing, your data will be extracted. However if you would like to opt out of this, please print off the form below, and return it to the Surgery.
