Type 1 opt-out Data Sharing
This link from NHS Digital explains why data is shared, it contains their transparency & privacy notices for doing so and also points to links where the patient can opt out if they want to: https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/data-collections-and-data-sets/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-planning-and-research/transparency-notice?fbclid=IwAR2h07o26rVYlJLrCCuoA65NSwYJhDVMzWyyLSa_nevV2VTdtzpSvCL6DmE#top
Data sharing with NHS Digital will start on 1st September 2021. (new revised date)
If you wish to register a Type 1 Opt-out with your GP practice before data sharing starts with NHS Digital, this should be done by returning this form to your GP practice by 1st September 2021 to allow time for processing it. If you have previously registered a Type 1 Opt-out and you would like to withdraw this, you can also use the form to do this. You can send the form by post to Darwen Healthlink, James Street West, Darwen, BB3 1PY or by email to the practice email@example.com or call 0300 3035678 for a form to be sent out to you. Please DO NOT call the practice for a form.
Paper copies of this form will also be available at reception for those who do not have access to online services. There is a box for patients to put their completed forms into and then our administration staff will code the opt out accordingly.

BWW harnesses the protective and therapeutic effects of connectedness and healthy social networks in its unique community where people share with, and support each other. The evidence is convincing, the wider determinants of health such as the communities in which we exist have a more beneficial impact than individual lifestyle factors and health behaviours. Innovative technology, and first class clinical teams and trained moderators, create a unique environment for members to lead their own recovery.
GP Patient Survey 2019
The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to over a million people across the UK. The results show how people feel about their GP practice. Darwen Healthlink had 309 questionnaires sent out with 112 returned for analysis. The results of this can be seen below by clicking the link.
