COVID-19: National data opt-out compliance deadline extended
The health and social care system is going to face significant pressures in the coming months due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Staff will need to work in different ways than usual and we want to ensure that they can focus on responding to these events.
We have, therefore, made the decision to extend the compliance deadline for the national data opt-out for six months up to 30 September 2020, at which point we will review the position.
