Imagine if you we could predict when patients became seriously unwell. Your GP or health care provider might be able to intervene before the condition became serious.

We are not in a position where we can predict the future but Artificial Intelligence technology is helping in the field of medicine to identify the risk of patient becoming unwell with long-term conditions.

Information on your clinical record [medical / prescription history and personal details] will be used to help your GP identify patients who may be at risk of developing chronic illness or better manage those already diagnosed with a condition and help you live a healthier life.

If you have any concerns or questions about how your data is being used, please speak to a member of the Practice Team. You have have the right to opt out at any time if you do not wish to take part – ...
