the services offered so we can provide the
best possible care for everyone.

are sent to a secure system where it can be
linked with other health information.
This allows those planning NHS services or
carrying out medical research to use
information from different parts of the NHS
in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice .
If you are happy for your information to be
used in this way you do not have to do
If you have any concerns or wish to prevent
this from happening, please speak to our
practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of
