National Data Opt-out
The NHS has launched the national data opt-out as part of the ‘Your Data Matters to the NHS’ campaign. This campaign informs the public that the strict rules about how health and care data can and cannot be used have been strengthened. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.
The campaign will also let the public know that they can choose whether their confidential patient information is used for research and planning. A new website https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/ has been launched which allows the public to find out more about how their data is used across health and care and to make this choice.
You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your confidential patient information is used. You can change your choice at any time.
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 surgery.
Type 2 opt-out: information held by NHS Digital
Previously you could tell your GP surgery if you did not want us, NHS Digital, to share confidential patient information that we collect from the across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out.
From 25 May 2018 the type 2 opt-out has been replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs that have been recorded previously have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.
