Opting out of sharing your confidential patient information

You can choose to stop your confidential patient information being used for research and planning. Your confidential patient information will still be used for your individual care.

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. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out. Please fill in and return the Type1 opt-out form to the surgery.
