As you may be aware, the government is introducing an information sharing system with effect from this Spring which has implications for how information about you is shared within the NHS. You should have received a leaflet about this recently in the post. Please read it carefully. If you are happy with its contents, you need take no further action. Should you wish to opt-out, please contact the surgery in order for this to be done.

More information regarding the scheme is available on the NHS website ( or by phoning 0300 456 3531.

Many thanks.
