Use of your NHS Number in Children Social Care and Early Help

If you are receiving support from children’s social care or early help then the NHS may share your NHS number with us.

This is so that the NHS and ourselves are using the same number to identify you whilst providing your care. By using the same number the NHS and Childrens social care and early help can work together more closely to improve your care and support.

We will use this Number to ensure that we work in a more joined up way across a number of support services including GP’s, hospitals, community matrons, district nurses, health visitors, midwives, school nurses, children’s centre staff and social workers.

NHS numbers are also submitted to Minister for Housing, Communities and Local Government ( MHCLG) as part of the Troubled Families programme evaluation
