Sharing Your Medical Information – Patient Leaflet

This leaflet explains why we collect information about you, the ways in which this information may be used and who we may share this information with to help care for you.

You may have heard or read recently about the General Practice Data for Planning & Research data collection. This collection has been delayed from the 1st July 2021 and will start from the 1st September 2021.

If, after having read our Sharing Your Medical Information leaflet, you wish to prevent your personal information being used outside this GP practice for purposes other than your individual care, you can register a Type 1 Opt-out form with us.

If you wish to register a Type 1 Opt-out with us before data sharing starts, please complete the form found on page 5 of the leaflet and return to the practice for us to process.

You can register a Type 1 Opt-out form at any time. You can also change your mind at any time and withdraw a Type 1 Opt-out.
