The National Data Opt-out Posted on 15 Jun 2018

NHS Digital is developing a new system to support the national data opt-out which will give patients more control over how confidential patient information is used. The system will offer patients and the public the opportunity to make an informed choice about whether they wish their confidential patient information to be used just for their individual care and treatment or also used for research and planning purposes.

Please visit www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters where you can find more information about wider data uses and the national data opt-out, and where you can set or change your national data opt-out choice.

For more information, please see Your Data Matters to the NHS - patient leaflet.pdf
