How to register a national data opt-out by proxy on behalf of your patients.
Help a patient to register a national data opt-out
Patients in the detained and secure estate who want to register a national data opt-out need a healthcare professional to fill in a proxy form on their behalf. Read the information and guidance on proxy forms about who can complete it and how it should be filled in.
The national data opt-out information is held centrally on the NHS Spine and will not be updated in the SystmOne prison module, so you will not see the national data opt-out in the patient’s record.
How to prevent use of invalid type 2 opt-out codes
The national data opt-out has replaced the previous type 2 opt-out codes. Type 2 opt-out codes must no longer be recorded in SystmOne. Any type 2 opt-outs previously submitted to NHS Digital have been converted to national data opt-outs.
Type 2 codes have now been inactivated from the Read Code Browser, but can still be added to records if they remain within templates and other data entry methods.
You should make sure these codes are not used in error by checking and removing them from templates you use.
