There are two types of patient data opt out, there is the the Type 1 Opt-out for patient data held by the GP Practice and the National Data Opt-Out (formerly known as Type 2 Opt-out). NHS Digital will automatically collect patient data unless you opt-out. You may select both types of opt-out or just one.
If you do not want your patient data, held by the GP Practice, to be shared with NHS Digital, you will need to complete the Type 1 Opt-out form. Download the Type 1 Opt-out form here. Please return any completed forms to the front desk or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to submit this form, to exclude any historical data, is the 31st August 2021. You can still submit your form after the 23rd June 2021, but any patient data prior to September 1st 2021 will be collected by NHS Digital.
