From 25 May 2018 the type 2 opt-out has been replaced by the national data opt-out and all type 2 opt-outs previously held by NHS Digital up to 25 May 2018 were converted to national data opt-outs. If you had a type 2 opt-out it will have been automatically converted.
For the period 25 May 2018 to 11 October 2018 GP practices could continue to set type 2 opt-outs and we, NHS Digital, continued to collect these every month and automatically converted them to national data opt-outs. These type 2 collections have now been stopped and GP practices should no longer be recording type 2 opt-out codes.
For more information about how NHS Digital uses and discloses your national data opt-out please read the privacy notice.
