Your information may also be used to help us:
Where we use your information to gather statistics we make sure that you cannot be identified from this information and individual patients cannot be identified.
We may also pass anonymous statistical information to organisations with a legitimate interest, including universities, community safety units and research institutions.
Personal identifiable information may be used for essential NHS purposes such as research and auditing services. This will only be done by obtaining your consent, unless the law requires information to be passed on to improve public health.
