Patients should note that the National Data Opt-Out (https://digital.nhs.uk/services/national-data-opt-out) does not apply to data entered onto SSNAP and if a patient has opted out via the National Data Opt-Out, their data will still be included. Patients can choose to opt-out of the audit locally, such that their personal identifiable information will not be stored or used for any purpose by the audit. Opting out from SSNAP will not affect the care a patient receives. For more information on how to opt-out from the audit or access the data collected about you, please contact your hospital directly.
Patient information resources are available on the SSNAP website: https://www.strokeaudit.org/Patients,-Carers-Public-Area.aspx. This includes the fair processing statement for patients and patient information sheets.
If you have any questions about the National Data Opt-Out, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
