What the NHS needs is a 'Fair Use' policy

@Monica Stevens if a patient formally opt outs it does not effect targets. Exception reporting is the same too. What is insulting is the fact healthy patients are being hounded for screening purposes etc. There needs to a opt out/do not contact box on the the GMS1. It would save an awful lot of resources if GP Practices did not have to chase patient who are not interested. Its damaging to the GP/Patient relationship.
