The Trust is one of many organisations working in the health and care system to improve care for patients and the public. The information collected about you when you are using NHS services can be provided to other approved organisations, where there is a legal basis, to help with planning services, improving care provided, research into developing new treatments and preventing illness.
All of these help to provide better health care for you, your family and future generations. Confidential personal information about your health and care is only used in this way where allowed by law and would never be used for insurance or marketing purposes without your explicit consent.
You have a choice about whether you want your confidential patient information to be used in this way. You can find out more about the wider use of confidential personal information and to register your choice to opt out by visiting the NHS website.
