Local Care Record
Health services collect and hold information about patients so that they can provide better health care to patients and improve services.
Sometimes we share this information with other health professionals to help us make sure your care is joined up – for instance, by sharing details of the medication you receive, or the operations you’ve had.
This leaflet tells you what sort of details we record, how it is held and shared and how you can see the information we hold about you.
It also tells you how the NHS shares information that does not identify patients to help improvements to services.

How the NHS and care services use your information: the National Data Opt-Out
NHS England is one of many organisations working in the health and care system to improve care for patients and the public.Whenever you use a health or care service, such as attending Accident and Emergency or using Community Care services, important information about you is collected in a patient record for that service. Collecting this information helps to ensure you get the best possible care and treatment.The information collected about you when you use these services can also be used and provided to other organisations for purposes beyond your individual care, for instance to help with:
- improving the quality and standards of care provided
- research into the development of new treatments
- preventing illness and diseases
- monitoring safety
- planning services.
This may only take place when there is a clear legal basis to use this information. All these uses help to provide better health and care for you, your family and future generations. Confidential patient information about your health and care is only used like this where allowed by law.
Most of the time, anonymised data is used for research and planning so that you cannot be identified in which case your confidential patient information isn’t needed.
You have a choice about whether you want your confidential patient information to be used in this way. If you are happy with this use of information you do not need to do anything. If you do choose to opt-out your confidential patient information will still be used to support your individual care.
To find out more or to register your choice to opt out, please visitwww.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters. On this web page you will:
- See what is meant by confidential patient information
- Find examples of when confidential patient information is used for individual care and examples of when it is used for purposes beyond individual care
- Find out more about the benefits of sharing data
- Understand more about who uses the data
- Find out how your data is protected
- Be able to access the system to view, set or change your opt-out setting
- Find the contact telephone number if you want to know any more or to set/change your opt-out by phone
- See the situations where the opt-out will not apply.

You can change your mind about your choice at any time.
Data being used or shared for purposes beyond individual care does not include your data being shared with insurance companies or used for marketing purposes and data would only be used in this way with your specific agreement.
Health and care organisations have until 2020 to put systems and processes in place so they can apply your national data opt-out choice. Our organisation is not currently able to apply your national data opt-out choice to any confidential patient information we may use or share with other organisations for purposes beyond your individual care.
However NHS England is currently reviewing its uses of confidential patient information with a view to applying the national opt-out where appropriate. We already apply the opt-out where requested to do so by organisations who request information for purposes other than individual care.

2017 to 2018 gender pay gap data : The Hurley Group
The Hurley Group are required to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation.
We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website.
At the time of the survey (31st March 2017), The Hurley Group employed 259 female employees compared to 69 males at the snapshot date of the 31st March 2017 and as seen from the percentage figures from the gender pay gap quartiles there are a higher proportion of men in the upper quartile. This would be because there is a higher proportion of male GPs compared to non-clinical male staff. The results of these statutory calculations are as follows:
Women’s hourly rate is:
LOWER 11.9% (mean) LOWER 0.1% (median)
Pay quartiles How many men and women are in each quarter of the employer’s payroll:
Top quartile: MEN 29% WOMEN 71% Upper middle quartile: MEN 13% WOMEN 87% Lower middle quartile: MEN 23% WOMEN 77% Lower quartile: MEN 18% WOMEN 82%
Women’s bonus pay is:
LOWER 100% (mean) LOWER 100% (median) Who received bonus pay: OF MEN 1.3% OF WOMEN 0%
The Hurley Group confirm that the above information has been prepared from our payroll data on the snapshot date and fairly represents the Gender Pay information for The Hurley Group.
