The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care. 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.
Type 1 Opt-outs may be discontinued in the future. If this happens then they may be turned into a National Data Opt-out. More information about the National Data Opt-out is here: https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/
Please complete the Type 1 – Opt Out Form and return to the surgery either via post, handing it in to the surgery or via email to WFCCG.email@example.com
