Care.data

NHS Data Sharing Schemes

There are two schemes, the summary care record where details of patient medication and allergies can be made available to hospitals and other NHS health providers in an emergency and the care.data programme where anonymized data is gathered by NHS England to identify trends and patterns in healthcare across the country. If you do not wish for your data to be shared in this way you need to opt out by completing a form or making a written request to the surgery.
