National Data Opt Out Compliance deadline extended again to 31 March 2021


The health and social care system is facing significant pressures due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Staff need to work in different ways than usual and we want to ensure that they can focus on responding to these events.

NHSX and NHS Digital have therefore made the decision to extend the compliance deadline for the national data opt-out which was 30 September 2020 to 31 March 2021.
