There is a lot of concern from patients about GP records being shared with third parties. The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purpose of your individual care. It is also shared with 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 using the form below. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out.
You can also opt out on line using the link button below or on the NHS app. If you do not have access to a computer or the NHS app you can phone and make your choice The phone number is 0300 303 5678 - Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays).
