NHS England Care Data Update 21 February 2014
NHS England collects health and social care data via the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).
We are asked to make you aware that certain limited patient information will be collected monthly from our records, commencing in spring 2014.
Your identity is protected by law, and the only information about you that will be collected is:
· NHS number
· Date of birth
This will enable general practice data to be linked to hospital and community care data.
You may chose not to allow this data to be collected. If you do not want this data collected, then please let us know as soon as possible by completing the objection form below and we will note your choice on your medical records.
