The national data opt-out applies to data that originates within the health and adult social care system in England and is applied by health and care organisations that subsequently process this data for purposes beyond individual care.
The opt-out does not apply to data disclosed by providers of health and care services outside of England or to children’s social care services.
The national data opt-out applies unless there is a mandatory legal requirement or an overriding public interest for the data to be shared. The opt-out does not apply when the individual has consented to the sharing of their data or where the data is anonymised in line with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Code of Practice on Anonymisation.
Please Note – Dr Sathyajith’s Practice does NOT disclose confidential patient information for any purposes beyond the individual’s patient care and treatment. Any disclosure of information would be either as a result of a mandatory legal requirement or an overriding public interest requirement for the data to be shared.
