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.

It will be very interesting to see,once this has taken place,how many Police forces have been happy to spend money on a trawling exercise to gather information.I’m sure the private companies who have paid a lot of money for these records will not have a bulk buy discount as they will wan’t to recoup their investment.
As Essex have said not about saving money with this latest review process so I’m sure Kirby and his like will be happily paying through the nose to gather information to pass to Cheng and his like.All in the guise of compassion for the IOD pensioner and as another tool in their armoury to help in their continued crusade to make sure we are receiving are correct pensions.This is of course to benefit us.Yeah right!Don’t make me laugh
How strange that the selling of private and confidential personnel info. has not been aired through the media. I have declined the sharing of my info. Do I want my private details shared by private firms that are solely driven by profit and shareholder dividends, no. Looks like the “behind closed doors” attempt to introduce this change is driven by the PM, after all, he married “behind closed doors. Obviously, conduct in his private life is being rolled out throughout parliament. The words, “sneaky little man (?) comes to mind. Not to be trusted, there again, no surprises there!
I do not agree with my data being scrapped or shared with any,one
They call it ‘sharing’, I call it SELLING!
I guess the HR offices will be looking forward to June 23rd?
I discovered that the notice I had given my GP, in 2017, to opt out of this ‘sharing’, was cancelled by NHS in 2018!
It is important that folks opt out! If our medical information is free to everyone the Insurance rates will increase, our IOD pensions could be even more nibbled away, and we would be inundated with spam!
Funnily enough the evidence I needed to prove a diagnosis of PTSD whilst in Psychiatric care was weeded out of my file after 20 years….Makes you wonder what they consider important enough to keep
