National Data Opt-Out 

From March 2020 Teign Estuary Medical Group are compliant with the National Data Opt-out Programme.

This means that following recommendations from the National Data Guardian (NDG) that “patients should be able to opt-out of their personal confidential data being used for purposes other than their direct medical care.”

A patient has to register their choice to opt-out only once, and that registration applies to all healthcare settings and organisations, not just general practice. They can do this by using one of the following:

  1. Online service – Patients registering need to know their NHS number or their postcode as registered at their GP practice
  2. Telephone service 0300 303 5678 which is open Monday to Friday between 0900 and 1700
  3. NHS App – for use by patients aged 13 and over. The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google play
  4. “Print and post” [1] registration form. Photocopies of proof of applicant’s name (e.g. passport, UK driving licence etc.) and address (e.g. utility bill, payslip etc.) need to be sent with the application. It can take up to 14 days to process the form once it arrives at NHS, PO Box 884, Leeds, LS1 9TZ
