The current NHS Digital (NHSD) extract of GP data for Research purposes (known as the GPDPR) has been delayed due to NHSD wishing to review the way in which this data will be collected, to conduct more public involvement and information about the plans and change the way in which patients can opt out of the extract of their GP data.
Currently the only way to opt out is to complete a Type 1 opt out form and return this to the practice by the 1st September. However, this extract will not be taken until the NHSD have changed the way it will take the data and respect the patient’s choice for using their data. NHSD are introducing the following changes to the opt out process which will mean that patients will be able to change their opt-out status at any time::-
• Patients do not need to register a Type 1 opt-out by 1st September to ensure their GP data will not be uploaded.
• NHS Digital will create the technical means to allow GP data that has previously been uploaded to the system via the GPDPR collection to be deleted when someone registers a Type 1 opt-out.
• The plan to retire Type 1 opt-outs will be deferred for at least 12 months while we get the new arrangements up and running and will not be implemented without consultation with the RCGP, the BMA and the National Data Guardian.
This means that you can opt out at any time in the future and NHSD will delete data that they already have taken for research purposes, the deadline of the 01/09/2020 has been delayed until a new system of opt out is developed. Hopefully, this will be a simple centralised approach via the NHS app or NHS website to avoid paper form and administration work for your GP.
We will update you when we know more about the NHSD plans to change how you can control who has access to your data.

GP ACCESS SCHEME
GP Access January - March 2020
Please be advised we no longer prescribe items for minor illness that you can buy or obtain from your local pharmacy (e.g. for hay fever) If you think you need an appointment for a minor illness we are asking you to visit your local pharmacy for advice and possibly treatment under the ‘pharmacy first’ scheme.
Don’t wait for a doctor’s appointment, go straight to your pharmacy.
HELPING YOU TO HELP YOURSELF
The NHS is under pressure from increasing demand, but you can help ease that pressure. Here are a few tips how…
|■ Please don’t ask for over the counter medicines on prescription for a minor illness|
■ Don’t just miss your GP appointment – tell them you’re not coming, preferably at
least 24 hours in advance
■Don’t just tick the box for repeat prescriptions - only order what you need
■A&E is for emergencies only - if it’s not an emergency, please try your local
Pharmacy, GP, Urgent Care Centre or call 111 for advice and out-of-hours GPs
