Your Data Matters
Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments.
In May 2018, the strict rules about how this data can and cannot be used were strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning.
You can change your choice at any time.

Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Sheet
Home blood pressure machines are now very common and are an accurate way of recording blood pressure. Most people’s blood pressure will rise when they come to see a healthcare professional, even if they feel completely relaxed. Using home blood pressure monitors therefore:
- Reduces over-treatment.
- Reduces medication for patients, and thus side-effects, complications and interactions.
- Reduces drug costs for the NHS.
- Saves appointments with nurses which will be used for other patients.
