Choosing if Your Information is Shared for Research and Planning

There has been a lot of information on social media about opting out of data sharing and the reception team are being asked questions about how to opt out.

All of the information you need on how to opt out is available on the following website:

https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/manage-your-choice/

If you wish to opt out, you need to follow the links on the above. The surgery team are not able to help with this.

We encourage you to read the information on sharing of DATA and make your own choice if you wish to opt out.

It is important to remember that this information is used to help the NHS plan future services and to research things like the COVID pandemic.
