Read about your choice.....Data Planning & Research  and Your Data Matters to the NHS

The data held in your GP Medical Records may be shared with other NHS healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care.

Your data may also be shared with other organisations outside of the NHS to support vital health and care planning and research. 

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your confidential patient information is used.

If you do not want your confidential data to be shared for these purposes you can register to opt-out, you can opt-out of both of just one but you will need to do this for each option. The NHS App does not support this service for opt-out currently.

If you have previously opted out you do not need do this again.  The decision to opt-out will not affect the individual care you receive and you can change your choice at any time.

There are currently two options to opt-out of sharing your data. 

Option 1 - National Data opt-out

You can choose whether your confidential patient information is used for research and planning. For more information about how the NHS manages your data, please follow the link:

You can only make your choice via the website and as a Practice we are unable to check what choices you have made as this data is kept nationally. 

Option 2 - Type 1 opt-out: Medical Records held at your GP practice

You can also tell your GP practice if you do not want your confidential patient information held in your GP medical record to be used for purposes other than your individual care. This is commonly called a type 1 opt-out. This opt-out request can only be recorded by your GP Practice which you can do either verbally, in writing or by completing the Type 1 Opt out form      and sending this to us.  We will then record your choice.  

Type 1 Opt Out

Type 2 opt-out: information held by NHS Digital

Previously you could tell your GP practice if you did not want us, NHS Digital, to share confidential patient information that we collect from across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out.

The type 2 opt-out was replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs recorded on or before 11 October 2018 have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.   So if you have completed this opt-out before you do not have to register your preference again.
