Your Data and research Posted on 21 Jun 2021

Dear Patients, due to the lack of clarity about use of data, and the lack of information being sent to patients by NHS Digital who wish to use the data, we have had some concerns. 

We, therefore, as a practice have taken the decision to code all patients records with the "Dissent from secondary use of GP patient identifiable data" Type1 opt-out code, which prevents your identifiable data being transferred from our practice systems for any purpose other than your medical care.

If you would prefer to opt-in to sharing your data, for any purpose other than your medical care, then please send your signed consent for this and we will removed the dissent to share code
