Use of your NHS Number in Children Social Care

If you are receiving support from adult social care then the NHS may share your NHS number with Childrens Social Care. 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 the NHS and Childrens social care can work together more closely to improve your care and support.

We will use this Number in an integrated care record system across a number of support services including GP’s, hospitals, community matrons, district nurses and social care practitioners.

If you wish to opt-out from the use of your NHS Number for social care purposes, please talk with your social worker, by contacting us on 01572 722577 or email .
