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.

If you have any type 2 opt-out codes recorded that have not been submitted to NHS Digital then please use the Detained and Secure Estate Proxy Form to submit these as national data opt-out requests.
