Please speak to a member of staff on your next visit to record your consent.

NHS Data Information
How information about you helps provide better care:
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide better quality care for everyone. e.g. unusual side effects of medication can be detected in this way over a large number of users at different sites.
This information along with your postcode and NHS number BUT NOT YOUR NAME are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with users information.
You have a choice-i.e. if you dont want your information to be used in this way please let us know and we will insert a code in your records that will prevent this.
