System update will help GPs remove national data opt-outs from data disclosures

Updates to GP systems are taking place from May which will allow GP practices to remove those patients who have registered a national data opt-out from data disclosures.

The deadline for data-opt out compliance is March 2020 – less than a year away. The four principal GP system suppliers are introducing new functionality which will enable the records of patients who have registered a national data opt-out to be removed from data disclosures. New guidance is available from NHS Digital.
