What can I do to help the NHS? 

  • Tell NHS staff if there is someone you want them to share your information with – for example, if you go to hospital, you may want staff to let a neighbour know about this. You should also tell NHS staff about anyone they should not share your information with – for example, you may not want your partner to know about your ill-health. 
  • If you change your name, address or phone number, tell your GP practice, dental practice, optician, and any hospital or clinic you go to.
  • If you think any information in your health records is incorrect, let NHS staff know.
