NHS England’s Care Data
Following the recent changes in the GP contract practices are under a lawful obligation under the Health and Social Care Act to provide patient data to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) (ie where national research is being undertaken). We are also obliged under the Data Protection Act to protect your data. It is important you are aware of these changes in the law. We have not provided blanket approval for extract of patient data from our clinical systems and consider each request on its merit. The information provided may be used in research to improve future health or to improve the functioning of the health service.
- This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.
- This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
- You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.
- If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff.

Wiltshire Council has just launched a new interactive website called ‘Active Wiltshire’, that will act as a one stop shop for sport, physical activity and health across the county.
As part of a Legacy for Wiltshire, a Wiltshire Council-led partnership which aims to encourage people to keep fit and active, the new Active Wiltshire website will provide local people and communities with information on a wide range of sporting and recreational activity currently available across the county.
Visitors to the site will have access to information on how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle, find sports clubs, groups and events in their local area and create a free profile on the site where they can record their BMI, follow a food plan and participate in challenges.
