Q - What was a a Type 2 Objection
The type 2 objection instructed NHS Digital not to share a patient's confidential information for purposes beyond their individual care. It was recorded in the GP patient record, using the following codes:
Read v2 - 9Nu4 'Dissent from disclosure of personal confidential data by Health and Social Care Information Centre'
CtV3 - XaaVL 'Dissent from disclosure of personal confidential data b Health and social Care Information centre'
The national data opt-out has replaced the type 2 opt-outs. GP Practices must no longer use the type 2 opt out code as it is no longer collected and processed.
Q - Is this about the Summary care Record (SCR)?
No, the national data opt-out does not affect the use of data for the patient's individual care and treatment. It should not be confused with SCR or any other local clinical record sharing schemes for patient care.
