National Data Opt Out & Type 1 Opt-Outs

National Data Opt-Out Type 1 (opting out of NHS Digital collecting your personally identifiable patient data)

Please click here for National Data Opt-Out Form

You can also register your opt-out preference via the NHS App

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.

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.

To register a Type 1 Opt-out, for yourself or for a dependent (if you are the parent or legal guardian of the patient) (to Opt-out) you can download the form from the link below and then returning it to the surgery. If you register a type 1 Opt-Out after this collection has started, no more of your data will be shared with NHS Digital. They will however still hold the patient data which was shared with NHS Digital before you registered the Type 1 Opt-Out.


National Data Opt-out (opting out of NHS Digital sharing your data) 

Please click here to see what information the NHS will share.


You can also register a National Data Opt-out, which will prevent NHS Digital from sharing your identifiable patient data for planning and research purposes. Your individual care will not be affected if you opt-out using either option.

Opt-outs (either type) that have been registered in the past will all be fully respected.

NHS Digital will collect data from GP medical records about patients who have registered a National Data Opt-out. The National Data Opt-out applies to identifiable patient data about your health, which is called confidential patient information.

NHS Digital won’t share any confidential patient information about you – this includes GP data, or other data we hold, such as hospital data – with other organisations, unless there is an exemption to this.
