If you do not want your patient identifiable data to be shared for purposes EXCEPT your personal care, you can “opt-out” by registering a Type 1 Opt out or National Data Opt-out, or BOTH.

These options are different and you can find out more:

Type 1 Opt-out – This means opting out of NHS Digital collecting your information from the GP Practice.

This collection started on 1st September 2021. You can still opt-out, but any data that has been collected before you register your opt-out will still be stored with NHS Digital. Once you have registered your opt-out no further data will be collected. You need to complete the Opt-out form here and return it to the Practice.

National Data Opt-out ( Down load form attached)
