The Health Improvement Network (THIN)

Your health data can save lives!

What is THIN?

When you visit the GP, information about your health and treatments is recorded.

This practice contributes to the THIN database, which collects anonymised patient information from general practices in the UK. THIN is used for research to benefit future patients, and has been used to study infections, cancer, diabetes, medicine safety and many other health issues.
