Under the Data Protection act 1998, NHS staff use your information to give you the care and treatment you need. This makes caring for you safer, easier and faster. Information is shared if your GP refers you to a hospital, you are moved from one hospital to another, you need support at home, such as a visit from a district nurse, or NHS 111 refers you to a GP or another part of the NHS.
