NOTE: If you are not bothered about your data being sold to all and sundry, simply ignore this. Thanks
Did you know that people in England only have until Wednesday 23rd June to stop the Government from selling all our NHS data to whoever they care to sell it? As of 1st July, unless you have opted out, “data may be shared from the GP medical records about… any living patient registered at a GP practice in England when the collection started.”
Are you happy about that? I’m guessing not as you will have no idea who will buy your sensitive medical data. So, to opt-out of this, here’s what to do:
- Firstly download and fill in the attached form and give it to your GP practice to protect the data they hold about you.
2) Then go to https://www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/ and fill in that form to stop your general NHS data from being sold.
3) Your children’s data can be protected by CLICKING HERE and filling in this form.
I know, it’s a ridiculous amount of forms and you shouldn’t have to do it, but it’s important that you do it in order to protect yourself.

Please tell your friends and family about this too.
