 HEALTH AND CARE FORUM FOR SEATON LOCALITY

In 2015 Health professionals and others with an interest in Health and Care issues were invited to join a Forum for Seaton and the surrounding parishes.

Meetings of the Forum have been held at Seaton and District Hospital since 2015 and members are very keen to encourage others to join, especially in order to represent patients and the public and in particular younger members of the community.

The Forum is one of five in the East Devon area, the others being Axminster, Honiton, Ottery St. Mary and Sidmouth and this provides a route for taking more general issues forward.

With recent changes in health services it is even more important that local people have their say.

Anyone with an interest in Health and Care matters or belonging to a group that they feel should be represented on the Forum can contact Tina Trapani who chairs the Forum by phoning 01297 21788 or by emailing nantinmumber@yahoo.com

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
