> There are two ways to opt out, apparently:

No, they're two different things.

- The type 1 stops the slurp - your data doesn't leave your GP.

- The national data optout still allows the central slurp, but prevents it being provided - in a non-anonymised form - to third parties.

Really, you probably want to do both. If you only do the National Data opt-out, then NHS Digital will still slurp and hold your data.
