Health and care organisations in Dorset are allowed to share information from your health and care records to help them provide you with care and treatment. Data and insight from this information can also be used to:
Plan the services that people will need in the future
improve health and care services for everybody
develop new cures and treatments
find new ways of preventing people from becoming ill.
The NHS wants to make sure that people in Dorset understand how their health and care information is shared and ensure that they have confidence that this is done safely and securely.
To help them do this, they are carrying out a short survey which asks a few questions about:
How you think information from your health and care records is shared now
how information from your health and care records should be shared in the future
what would give you trust and confidence in how your information is shared
The answers will be used to plan how you are kept informed about, and involved in, how your health and care information is shared.
If you are able to complete the survey it is now open until Friday 19 August.
If you have any questions or need support please contact email@example.com.
