A view across Airedale's hospital site to outpatients and the emergency department

We aim to provide the highest quality care. To do this, we routinely collect information about you and the care you receive from us.

Like other hospitals across England, we are changing how we share and use this data.

When an ambulance brings you to our Emergency Department (A&E), the information we collect, including your NHS number, date of birth, and time of arrival to the hospital, will now be securely matched with the same patient information collected by the ambulance trust.

Following your episode of care, the ambulance trust will then receive details on your outcome. This information will help them understand the patient journey and further improve the care they provide in the future.

This change will have no impact on the care we provide.
