Your health records contain confidential patient information, which can be used to help with research and planning. If you would like this to stop, you can opt out of this yourself or on behalf of someone else. For example, if you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13.
Health and care staff may use your confidential patient information to help with your treatment and care. For example, when you visit your GP, they may look at your records for important information about your health.
Confidential patient information is also used to:
- plan and improve health and care services
- research and develop cures for serious illnesses
You can stop your confidential data being used for research and planning. Your confidential patient information will still be used for your individual care. Any choice you make will not change this.
