Use of your NHS Number in Childrens Social Care

If you are receiving support from Children Social Care then the NHS may share your NHS number with Children Social Care. This is so that the NHS and adult social care are using the same number to identify you whilst providing your care. 


By using the same number the NHS and Children Social Care can work together more closely to improve your care and support.


We will use this Number in an integrated care record system across a number of support services including GP’s, hospitals, community matrons, district nurses and social care practitioners.


If you wish to opt-out from the use of your NHS Number for social care purposes, please talk with your social worker, by contacting us on 0345 603 7630 or email: contact@essex.gov.uk.
