National Data Opt Out by 30 September 2021.
Patients personal confidential data is extracted and shared with NHS Digital in order to support vital health and care planning and research. Further information can be found here.
Patients may opt out of having their information shared for Planning or Research by applying a National Data Opt Out and/or a Type 1 Opt Out:
- National Data Opt Out means that NHS Digital will not share any confidential patient data it holds but will collect data from your GP medical record to use for its own service planning and research purposes. To do the National Data Opt Out, register your preference at https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/, or call 0300 303 5678 or print off a form and post it back to the NHS. This was previously known as the Type
- Opt Out. If you're happy with your confidential patient information being used for research and planning you do not need to do anything.
Type 1 opt Out means NHS Digital will not any collect data from your GP practice at all. Your opt out must be registered before 30 September 2021. If a type 1 opt out is registered after this date, no extraction will occur from the date but NHS Digital will still hold data extracted before the opt out date. To do the Type 1 opt Out, complete this form and return it to our reception team https://nhs-prod.global.ssl.fastly.net/binaries/content/assets/website-assets/data-and-information/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-planning-and-research/type-1-opt-out-form.docx
