National Data Opt-out introduced across England

The NHS has launched the ‘National Data Opt-out’ as part of the ‘Your Data Matters to the NHS’ campaign.  The NHS wants to inform the public that the strict rules about how data can and cannot be used have been strengthened as a result of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to let the public know that they can choose whether their confidential patient information is used for research and planning.

A new website has been launched which allows the public to find out more about how their data is used across health and care and how they can opt out.  To find out more visit:
