Care.data is a new programme where information on GP records will be shared with the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). This is to help the NHS plan and improve patient care for the whole country. GP surgeries by law have to allow this transfer of information (data).
However, if you choose not to allow information about you to be shared, you can opt out. If you opt out, your GP can put a code on your records so they can’t be shared.
To opt out, please print and complete the below form and then deliver to either surgery.
