Risk Profiling

This practice is taking part in a new NHS service that helps your family doctor (GP) to spot whether you need more help to manage your health condition. The service is called "risk profiling".

Using information from your health records, a secure NHS computer system will look at any recent treatments you have had in hospital or at this surgery, and any existing health conditions that you have, and alert your doctor to the likelihood of a possible future hospital admission. The clinical team at the surgery will use the information to help you get early care and treatment where it is needed.

The information will be seen only by health professionals involved in your care. NHS security systems will protect your health information and patient confidentiality at all times.

If you object to your information being used in this way, or have any other concerns, please complete and return the opt out form on the "How your NHS records are managed" page.
