NHS privatisation / important information regarding your medical records 

As part of the government's creeping privatisation of the NHS they're looking to sell patient data. There is an opt-out but it's not a simple tickbox on a website. You have until 23 June 2021 to opt-out.

I discovered through this that my GP has the wrong phone number and email address in their records too, so that's an other thing sorted in a sort of "please don't give out my details, but also here are the correct details" way

@Shrigglepuss Quick question, this is england-specific then?

Asking because we want to share this on a few accounts, but want to make sure we're entirely clear on who's affected so we can avoid spreading misinformation/massive panic or something.

@Rusanya_Collective This article seems to suggest it's only England for now, and the NHS opt-out website says the choices will be applied for "NHS Digital and Public Health England", and "all other health and care organisations by 30 September 2021" so it's quite vague where that all falls geographically. I'd say try anyway if elsewhere in the UK just to be sure, they can always reject it on their end if it's not applicable

@Shrigglepuss Opt-out? Really? Wouldn't this have been forbidden under EU law? GDPR and all that. Good riddance eh!
