NHS Digital

NHS Digital uses information and technology for better health and care.

As an arms-length body of the Department of Health, we are the national provider of information, data and IT systems for commissioners, analysts and clinicians in health and social care.

NHS Digital:
• operates and develops IT systems
• collects processes and publishes data
• ensures organisations meet information and security standards

We support the health and care system, helping patients to make informed choices about their care while ensuring that their data is kept safe.
