New Media

National Data Opt-Out Programme media now available

A new NHS National Data Opt-Out Programme media has now been added to the Envisage Media library.

The National Data Opt-Out Programme allows patients to opt out of their confidential patient information being used for research and planning. It was introduced in May 2018 and is part of the Your Data Matters NHS campaign.

Using a patient’s information about their health and care helps the NHS to improve patient care, speed up diagnosis, plan local services and research new treatments. To find out more about the programme, please visit: nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters

To help make you patients aware of this new programme we have added a video that explains the rights patients have and how they can opt out. To add this video to your Envisage please visit: https://console.envisage-system.co.uk/ and click the Envisage Media LaunchPad icon.

If you get any problems adding the National Data Opt-Out Programme video to your Envisage system then please visit our dedicated support section.or contact our technical support team on 0114 399 0010.
