Type 1 Opt-Out (opting out of NHS Digital collecting your data)


This practice is supporting vital health and care planning and research by sharing your data with NHS Digital.

It is a legal requirement for practices to comply with this.


The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care.

It can also be shared with other organisations to support health and care planning and research, the extracted data will be “pseudonymized” i.e. not directly identifiable, but not fully anonymized – and NHSD reserves the right to de-pseudonymize it in certain circumstances.

Previously this was known as General Practice Extraction Services [GPES]

During the pandemic General Data for Pandemic Planning & Research [GDPPR] was introduced.

From July 1 General Practice Data for Planning & Research [GPDfPR] will succeed these, and is to be used for wider purposes than pandemic/COVID research. 

For more information about this see the GP Privacy Notice for General Practice Data for Planning & Research at: https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/data-collections-and-data-sets/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-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 to opt-out, this is known as a Type 1 opt-out.

The easiest way to do this is to click here: https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/ Then click - Make Your Choice and follow the prompts to register your opt-out.

Alternatively you can register your opt-out through us, please see proforma at the bottom of this section; simply download, print -off, complete and return to the surgery. 

NHSD will not collect data from GP practices about patients who have registered a Type 1 Opt-out with their practice.

This daily collection has been deferred and will now start on 1 September 2021 so if you do not want your data to be shared with NHS Digital, please register your Type 1 Opt-out with your GP practice by 23 August 2021 to give sufficient time for your request to be processed.

You may also wish to register a National Data Opt-out which is not done at GP practice level; for this, you must contact NHS Digital - more information about the National Data Opt-out is here: https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/
