On 1st July 2021 your identifiable patient data held on your GP records will be shared with NHS Digital for Planning and Research. For more information on what data will be collected and how it will be used please visit: NHS Digital
If you don’t want your identifiable patient data to be shared for purposes except for your own care, you can opt-out by completing the Type 1 opt out form and returning it to the practice by the 23rd June 2021
If you register a Type 1 Opt-out after this date, no more of your data will be shared. However NHS Digital will still hold any data shared before you completed the Type 1 Opt-out.
If you do not want NHS Digital to share your identifiable patient data with anyone else for purposes beyond your own care, then you can also register a National Data Opt-out. Please do not contact the surgery with regard to the National Data Opt-Out
