The NHS National opt-out programme
The NHS is committed to ensuring your data is handled safely, securely and appropriately and that you as an individual can make choices over the use of your confidential data.
The NHS in England is highlighting the value that your information brings to developing new treatments and services, but recognises that not all individuals want their information used in this way. Therefore you can opt out.
