Use of your NHS Number in Adult Social Care

If you are receiving support from adult social care then the NHS may share your NHS number with us. This is so that the NHS and adult social care are using the same number to identify you whilst providing your care. By using the same number we can work together to improve your care and support.

For more information about how we use your data, including your privacy rights and the complaints process, please see our corporate privacy notice.
