Around one in 45 patients have opted out of having information that identifies them being shared outside of the NHS for purposes beyond direct care.

 

Health & Social Care Information Centre data indicates that as of June 2016, 2.2% of patients have selected this ‘type 2’ opt out. While type 2 opt-out levels vary by CCG and over time, 95.7% of clinical commissioning groups currently have between a 0% and 5% opt-out rate.

In addition, HSCIC has said that there have been 1,492,129 instances of type 1 opt-outs - which prevents information being shared outside a GP practice for purposes other than direct care. The figures are based on data collected from 96.95% of general practices (7,434) in England, and representing 98.32% of patients (56,743,416).

Data is available per practice for total type 1 and total type 2 opt outs.
