You can view our Data Retention Policy here.
Many organisations in the NHS such as Hospitals, GPs, Dentists, Opticians, and Community Pharmacists provide healthcare services to the people of Wales.
The people providing these services aim to provide you with the highest quality care. To do this we must keep records about your health and any treatment or care which we provide you.
We hold your information on a computer or in a written record, sometimes it’s in both. These records help to guide and manage the care you receive.
