here's how

it's apparently made really difficult to opt out of the central database but this explains it

I printed out this letter from TheBigOptOut site and sent to GP. Got a letter back from practice manager saying they'd done what I asked. GP's are pleased when patients send the letters in because they don't agree with what's happening either. I'm a health visitor have seen how many non health care professionals - temporary clerks, receptionists administrators, non clinical managers - have access to the full record. They're supposed to have restricted access but this doesn't seem to be happening.

I think mine's already on there after moving about so much, can I ask for it to be taken off now we're settled?

My printer has decided to play up. Do you need to do them for children as well.

Am not an expert. I think you can ask for it to be taken off. I think it applies to children too.

Just think it's awful the way they make it so difficult.

Stripey, that letter is really useful.

Also KEA I think you have to be proactive.. they may not necessarily ask you, your details may be added automatically unless you opt out.
