FULL MEDICAL RECORD ONLINE ACCESS
Please be aware that it can take up to 21 working days to process full access to your medical record.
We have received extra requests from patients to access their full medical record online, due to the ability to see your vaccination status online, and our Administration Team are working hard to process these requests.
DATA OPT OUT
A leaflet developed by the Patient Participation Group (information sourced from NHS Digital) is available to download from the website or at The Peninsula Practice (Aldeburgh, Alderton, Hollesley, and Orford). Please read it carefully.
Type 1 Opt-out
If you wish to stop your GP data leaving The Peninsula Practice for purposes other than your direct care, you can do so by filling in and giving or posting the form to the Peninsula Practice
Fill in and give a ‘Type 1’ form to the Peninsula Practice – this form allows you to include details for your children and dependants as well.
This is the most urgent step - the deadline to get your form to your GP practice is 17 August.
Type 2 Opt-out
If you wish to stop your non-GP data, such as hospital or clinic treatments, being used/sold for purposes other than your direct care, you must use this process:
If it’s just for yourself, use NHS Digital’s online National Data Opt-out process – this process only works for individuals aged 13 and over.
If you have children under 13, you need to fill in this form and e-mail or post it back to NHS Digital – this form works for both you and your children.
If you have an adult dependant for whom you have legal responsibility, you must use this form and send it back to NHS Digital on their behalf.
Please note: there is no deadline for type 2, the National Data Opt-out (i.e. your non-GP data), but the sooner you do it, the sooner it takes effect.
If you wish to opt out for both your GP data and National data, you must complete both Type 1 opt-out and type 2 opt-out forms.
If you don’t have a printer
If you don’t have access to a working printer for the type 2 National Opt-out, you can ask the NHS Digital Contact Centre to post you the forms you need. Their phone number is 0300 303 5678 and they are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays), or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
