In Autumn 2014 the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) will begin to extract clinical patient data from GP Practices that can be used by the NHS to improve services offered.This information along with your date of birth, postcode, NHS number and gender, but NOT your name will be sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information before being deleted. Once this information has been linked, a new record will be created. This new record will not contain any information that identifies you.
For further information please read the patient leaflet NHS England – How information about you helps us to provide better care and FAQs for Patients.
