Shropshire Skin Clinic constantly seeks to improve the high quality care we provide to our patients and as a consequence we sometimes use anonymised patient information in NHS-led audits. In all cases, patient information is rendered anonymous. No information is used commercially or passed to agencies outside the NHS. Any patient that does not want their information to be used in this way can inform us and we will exclude it from any further audit process.
