Opting out of the joined-up health and care record
The below opt-out form is for people who would like to opt out of the electronic joined-up health and social care record.
We ask you to think carefully before opting out of this scheme. Sharing your health and social care information will make it easier for services to provide the best treatment and care for you. Your information will continue to be shared, as it is now, by email, telephone and paper.
Read more about why this is so important and what the benefits of joined-up care records are for residents.
We need your NHS number to be able to process your request to opt out.
If you don’t know your NHS number please visit: www.england.nhs.uk/contact-us/how-can-we-help/ how-can-i-find-out-my-nhs-number/ or ask your GP practice.
Please download our opt-out form and either print it and complete it using a pen, or complete it on your computer as a form. The form requires your signature to show that you have understood that you will not benefit from the electronic joined-up record, which will make it easier for services to provide the best treatment and care for you.
