Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.
Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.
How your information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy.
We will need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
