How information about you helps us to provide better care

Introduction

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture.

5 a day on a budget

Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables doesn’t have to be expensive. There are lots of affordable ways to get your 5 A DAY.
Here's how to eat more fruit and vegetables while still saving money:.
•Buy fruit and vegetables loose rather than pre-packaged. Loose fruit and veg can be as little as half the price.
•Look for supermarket deals on fruit and vegetables, such as buy one get one free offers.
•Fruit and vegetables are usually cheaper if they're in season. You can find out what is in season at the Love British Food website's page on seasons.
•Fruit and vegetables are often cheaper at your local street or farmers' market.
•Replace your morning or afternoon snack with a piece of fruit. A banana or an apple costs around 20p at the supermarket, about half the price of most chocolate bars or packets of crisps. The savings add up and so do the health benefits.
•Don’t throw away vegetables that are about to go out of date. Use them in stews, soups and casseroles, which you can freeze and eat another time.
•Stock up on canned fruit and vegetables. They count towards your 5 A DAY and won’t go off, so you can buy them in bulk. Buy those canned without added salt or sugar. Supermarket own-brand varieties are usually the cheapest.
•Look for good deals on frozen and dried fruit and veg, such as frozen peas and dried pulses and beans. They are often cheaper than fresh varieties.
•Swap ready meals for homemade alternatives. Vegetables in dishes such as stews, bakes, casseroles and curries count towards your 5 A DAY, and cooking these dishes yourself is cheaper than buying them ready-made.
•Cook in bulk and freeze portions to eat another time. For more meal ideas, go to 5 A DAY recipes.

Protect your skin from the sun this summer

Sun damage happens when the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate into the skin and damage cells. You can’t feel this happening, and it can occur even when the sun doesn’t feel very hot. To protect your skin use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or more  and be liberal with your sunscreen. According to Cancer Research UK, people don't apply as much sunscreen as they need to. If you don't apply enough, you won't get the protection that is claimed on the bottle.
Make sure you cover all exposed skin, including the tops of feet, ears and the back of the neck.
