How information about you helps us to provide better care.


Health & Social Care information Centre



Information about you and the care you receive is shared, anonymised, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.


Benefits of sharing information


Sharing information can help improve understanding, locally and nationally, of the most important health needs and the quality of the treatment and care provided by local health services.  It may also help researchers by supporting studies that identify patterns in diseases, responses to different treatments and potential solutions.


Information will also help to:-

  • Find more effective ways of preventing, treating and managing illnesses;
  • Guide local decisions about changes that are needed to respond to the needs of local patients;
  • Support public health by anticipating risks of particular diseases and conditions, and help us to take action to prevent problems;
  • Improve the public's understanding of the outcomes of care, giving them confidence in health and care services;
  • Guide decisions about how to manage NHS resources fairly so that they can best support the treatment and management of illnesses for the benefit of patients.
