National Data Opt Out

NATIONAL DATA OPT OUT

Q- What is the national data opt-out

  • The national data opt-out allows patients to choose to stop their confidential patient information from being used for purposes beyond their individual care.
  • The national dta opt-out cannot be set through GP systems.
  • Anyone registerd with the NHS who has an NHS number can register an opt-out online or via a contact centre, details of which are included in the patient materials.
  • The national data opt-out has been applied by NHS Digital since 25 May 2018 and by 2020 all health and care organisations must apply national data-opt outs in line with the policy. For more information see:
  • https://digital.nhs.uk/services/national-data-opt-out
  • The Practice is not yet fully compliant with National Data Opt Out
  • If you wish to Opt Out you will need your NHS number

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.

Refer to National Data Opt Out web pages.
