The NHS has plans to scrape all your personal and medical data into a huge silo, which they plan to share (read sell) to commercial companies. The plan is to anonymise the data, so what could go wrong?
If you wish to stop your data leaving your own GP practice, you need to take positive action to prevent this from happening. You have until the 23rd June 2021 to do so.
Here are the methods by which you can opt out.
