Sharing your information

Sharing information about the care you have received, enables those involved in providing care and health services to improve the quality of care and health services. 

NHS England has commissioned a programme of work on behalf of the NHS, public health and social care services to address gaps in information. Their aim is to ensure that the best possible evidence is available to improve the quality of care for all.

This involves us sharing information about  you!

Your date of birth, full postcode, NHS Number and gender rather than your name will be used to link your records in a secure system, managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) . Once this information has been linked, a new record will be created. This new record will not contain information that identifies you. The type of information shared, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and strict confidentiality rules.

For more information on this please click here

and for information on how to OPT OUT click here

You may receive a pack/ leaflet in the post however, If you do not provide us with the correct documentation to opt out by the 31st of March 2014 we will have no choice but share your information. 

Please share this information with friends and family. We want as as many patients to have an informed decision before this goes live.

Thank you

1 in 3 women who get breast cancer are over 70, so don't assume you’re past it.

1 in 3 women who get breast cancer are over 70, so don't assume you’re past it.

A lump isn’t the only sign of breast cancer.

If you notice any changes in your breasts, it’s important that you contact your doctor straight away. You’re not wasting anyone’s time and it’s much better to be sure, if only to put your mind at rest.

Finding breast cancer early makes it more treatable. A trip to your doctor’s surgery could save your life. And if a friend or relative says they have any of these symptoms, insist they see their doctor.
