IMPORTANT anyone who has received the NHS opt out form that was sent out a couple of weeks ago, when returning it scan and keep a copy after filling it out this is especially important if you are opting out of having your records shared with the likes of ATOS etc as it is your record of opting out should you medical info be shared.
Yes you have to fill in and send off to opt out otherwise you will automatically be opted in and you records will be sold to whoever wants them and as ATOS has won the contract they cannot be trusted.
What will happen if you opt out? not a lot you will still be asked by hospital what medication you are on and/or bring them in
You should have been sent to everyone link from nhs but of course it does not tell you everything like who has access
If you have not received yours this link tells you how or you can download and print the online one if you have a printer
P.S… It does not tell you that your records can be sold to the private sector like for say pharmacutical companys etc or that the IT system used to share that info is made and run by ATOS…
