The national data opt-out gives everyone the ability to stop health and social care organisations from sharing their confidential information for research and planning purposes, with some exceptions such as where there is a legal mandate/direction or an overriding public interest for example to help manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a domiciliary care provider, it is very rare that we are ever asked to share confidential information for research and/or planning purposes.  Nevertheless, you can if you wish choose to opt-out of your data being used in this way – to do so, please call 0207 407 6620 and ask to speak with Will Hobson, the Data Protection Officer, or email
