Care.data

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that the NHS can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. The NHS would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help provide a full picture. This will allow the NHS to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so it can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download a copy of the NHS leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”

Please indicate if you wish to collect the prescription from the surgery or if it should be sent to Hobb’s or Boots in Caterham for dispensing.

We have been advised that due to confidentiality issues repeat prescriptions for a friend or relative can in future only be collected from the GP surgery if the patient has given explicit consent to the practice for the person to collect the prescription.  Confirmation of the patient’s name, address and Date of Birth will be required at the time of collection
