Why do we collect information about you?

The healthcare professionals caring for you keeprecords about your health and any treatment and care you receive from us. These records help to ensure that you receive the best possible care and may be written on paper or held on a computer. They may include:

  • Basic details about you such as name, address, date of birth, next of kin, GP practice etc.
  • Contact we have had with you such as appointments or clinic visits.
  • Notes and reports about your health, treatment and care.
  • Results of x-rays, scans and laboratory tests.
  • Relevant information from people who care for you and know you well such as health or social care professionals, relatives or carers.

It is essential that we have accurate and up to date information about you so that we can give you the best possible care. Please check that your personal details are correct whenever you visit us and inform us of any changes, for example, to your contact details or GP practice as soon as possible. This minimises the risk of you not receiving important correspondence.
