GP survey reveals extent of care.data ignorance among patients and staff

Comment

I went to opt out myself and family, and just got confused looks from my GP Surgery, and the practice manager had no idea either, and responded by saying they were still waiting for the information packs from NHS England. I was forced to print out the opt out forms at home, as the leaflet that was sent through had no details on how to opt out, and simply told you to get an appointment with your GP to discuss - have you tried to get a GP appointment! The time scale is tight, and the risk of it not being done in time leading to it being uploaded, and that is irreversible.
