NHS England CARE.DATA initiative
Every week, the NHS collects millions of pieces of data about the nature of people’s health, the way services are accessed and the types of treatments provided to support our nations’ health and wellbeing. Care.data is being delivered by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and
NHS England to bring this information together so the NHS can use it to:
better understand and improve the health of the nation;
find ways of targeting, preventing, treating and managing illness and disease; and
better anticipate future need for services and plan and commission accordingly.
The information gathered - date of birth, full postcode, NHS Number and gender - will be used to link patient records in a secure system, managed by the HSCIC. Confidentiality is paramount and if this information is used, it will not contain information that identifies individuals. The type of information shared, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and strict confidentiality rules. NHS England is committed to supporting patients in making informed decisions about their healthcare and how their information is used.
An awareness campaign will include a letter sent to every household in England commenced on 6th January, explaining what information will be used as part of care.data, making it clear how people can opt out if they choose to do so.
GP's are legally obligated to provide this data to NHS England and the data will begin transfering by the end of January. Please read the Patient Leaflet attached. A limited number of these are available in the surgery. Alternatively for more information please access NHS England's dedicated website at www.nhs.uk/caredata
Should you have any questions, please contact NHS England on: 0300 456 3531
UPDATE: NHS England have announced a 6 month delay on this data extract. Please visit www.nhs.uk/caredata for more information

There is a National shortage of Yellow Fever vaccinations and we do not currently have any in stock. The suppliers are yet unable to advise when there will be any available. Please refer to www.nathnac.org for further details.
We have a suggestion box in the surgery foyer, and are developing questionnaires for completion within the practice. You can also complete a questionnaire on this website now.
