NHS Digital is the secure haven* for NHS patient data, a single secure repository where data collected from all branches of the NHS is processed. NHS Digital provides reports on the
performance of the NHS, statistical information, audits and patient outcomes (https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information). Examples include; A/E and outpatient waiting times,  the numbers of staff in the NHS, percentage target achievements, payments to GPs etc and more specific targeted data collections and reports such as the Female Genital Mutilation, general practice appointments data and English National Diabetes Audits.
