What is Risk Stratification?

There are two types of risk stratification:

The first type of risk stratification aims to identify those patients within the practice who may benefit from additional support and/or assessments, based on their specific health problems.

The second type of risk stratification aims to identify patterns of ill health and the related requirements across the local patient population. Patient information would be pulled together as an anonymised file, where each patients' identity would be removed; the trends in illnesses would then be analysed across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, as a whole.

In both of the cases above, the NHS aims to protect patient health information and ensure strict confidentialty throughout the whole process.

For further information, please read the leaflet.
