Review Of The NHS Central Register

Review Of The NHS Central Register

The NHS Central Register (NHSCR) review was conducted at the request of the Minister for Health and the Deputy Minister for Justice, recognising that major developments on patient confidentiality had taken place since the NHSCR had last been subject to review. Its aim was to identify the future role and function of NHSCR and to make recommendations on its role, functions and relationships. It also considered the Register's future options in the light of developments in information technology, legislation in relevant areas and changes in the needs of NHSScotland and the users of its data.
