The data held in your GP medical records is shared with other healthcare professionals for the purposes of your individual care. It is also shared with other organisations to support health and care planning and research.
If you do not want your 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.
You can download the opt-out form below as a Word document, please complete it and e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org Please use ‘Type 1 Opt-out’ as the subject line of your e-mail.
