a) Does anyone share the same number?
b)Is the NHS number unique to the man/woman/child it is given to?
c) If they are shared couldnt that lead to fraud?

Dear Amanda-Jane

 

Thank you for your information request.

 

NHS Sheffield CCG cannot answer your request under the Freedom of
Information Act. This is because the CCG is not responsible for the
issuing of NHS/ Hospital numbers or birth certificates and therefore does
not hold the information that you have requested.

 

However, I can provide some information and guidance which I hope will be
helpful to you.

 

NHS number - NHS Numbers are unique and given when you register for NHS
services, for example with a GP. Since 2002 all babies born in England
automatically receive an NHS number.  For more information please refer to
link -
[1]https://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/thenhs/rec...

 

Hospital number - These are only generated when you attend hospital. The
number is unique to you in that hospital.

 

Birth certificates - A copy of your birth certificate should be available
at the registry office where your birth was registered.

 

We trust this provides you with the information you require.

 

Kind regards

Chevaughn
