The NHS register for England and Wales contains basic personal details of all patients registered with a General Practitioner (GP) in order to manage the administration of practice lists.
So that the NHS can manage and plan services, some information about you is sent to the organisation responsible for your care, and to the Department of Health.
As far as possible this information will not identify you. The information is used for a variety of purposes such as to pay organisations for the care they provide, investigate complaints or untoward incidents and to look after the health of the general public.
Further use of centrally held information is strictly controlled by the Department of Health and advisory bodies such as the Patient Information Advisory Group.
Information held centrally is not used to make any decisions about the treatment or care that you receive from your hospital or GP.
To find out more see our Sharing your Information leaflet.
