At Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, we aim to provide you with the highest quality of health care. To do this, we must keep records about you, your health and the care we provided to you or plan to provide to you. This is our Trust's commitment to use records about you in ways that respect your rights and promote your health and wellbeing.

What do you use my records for?

The people who care for you use records to:
  • Provide a good basis for all health decisions made by you and care professionals;
  • Allow you to work with those providing care;
  • Make sure your care is safe and effective;
  • Work effectively with others providing you with care.

Others may also need to use records about you to:

  • Check the quality of care (such as clinical audit);
  • Protect the health of the general public;
  • Keep track of NHS spending;
  • Manage the health service;
    • Help investigate any concerns or complaints you or your family have about your health care;
  • Teach health care workers; and
    • Help with research
