Patient consent to store NHS/CHI number on NVR

  • Please continue to ensure that you gain consent from patients so that their identifiable data can be recorded on the NVR.
  • We plan to link the NVR data to HES and ONS, which will provide us with more information and ascertain long term outcomes. However, this can only be done for NVR records with consent that contain the patient’s NHS/CHI number.
