Patient information is already used extensively by the NHS but we need to improve how we use the information so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. That’s why NHS England has commissioned the Care.Data Program on behalf of the entire health and social care system, which will make the best possible use use of information from medical records with the intention of improving health services.


This helpful animation explains how patient data helps the NHS improve it’s services.
