Further information and to register for National Data Opt Out
We would like to make it clear that there are two types of opt out:
Type 1 applies at practice level and means that your medical record is not extracted from the practice for any purpose other than direct care.
Type 2 (National Data Opt Out) means data can go to NHS Digital for their lawful purposes but cannot be shared with organisations beyond NHS Digital for research and planning purposes.
If you wish to apply Type 1 Opt Out, please let us know and we will apply this locally to your clinical record. This will mean you data is not extracted on the 1st of July 2021.
If you wish to apply Type 2 National Data Opt Out you must do this directly with NHS Digital - You can do this in a few ways:
- By visiting the Manage your Choice page at the NHS website
