The Government has announced
1st July will be the start of English NHS patients data upload to a central database - unless you opt out
@cubicgarden it's been pushed back 2 months now
though a new deadline for opting out hasn't been announced, so it's probably wise to still get your forms in within the next fortnight
@cubicgarden Good to check if your surgery will accept emails with the form attached for this. Mine does but I only found out once I'd got the form in the envelope with a stamp on it.
@cubicgarden guess what, if you are not currently living in the UK, they have decided you can't opt out. No rights for people's data if they don't currently live in the UK.
