NHS Data Sharing Opt-Out

The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care (such as when we do a referral for you to a hospital for example). It is also shared with other organisations to support health and care planning and research.

If you do not want your personally identifiable patient data to be shared outside of your GP practice for purposes except your own care, you can register an opt-out with your GP practice. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out.

Download and complete the Type 1 Opt out form. Once completed in full, including your signature, please return it to the surgery by email or post.
