National data Opt-Out

General Practice Data for Planning and Research extraction

Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced on 19 July 2021 (General Practice Data for Planning and Research: GP Practice Privacy Notice – NHS Digital) the GPDPR data collection has been delayed to allow more time to work on the project framework and communications. This will be delayed by at least 12 months.

The extraction will no longer commence on 1st September and the opt-out system is being changed which means there is no urgency for practice and patients to process Type 1 opt-outs before September.
