The national data opt-out service was introduced on 25 May 2018 providing a secure and accessible way for the public to opt out of their confidential patient information being used for reasons other than their individual care and treatment.

Having raised awareness about the national data opt-out with health and adult social care organisations across England, the next phase is for us to enable you and your organisation to comply with the national data opt-out policy and know when and how to apply the opt-out to your data uses/disseminations.

Please complete this very short survey to help us develop the support, guidance and advice you need during this next stage.   It should only take 5 minutes.  

Your data will be submitted anonymously and will only be used by NHS Digital for the research purposes specified.  The survey will close at 5pm on Wednesday 31 October 2018.


You are invited to an open event on Thursday 18 October from 2pm - 4pm, to hear the thinking to date, and give your thoughts for the future.  The event will comprise a short presentation, followed by round table discussions and an opportunity to ask questions.   Anyone with an interest in these services is welcome to attend.

On #WorldMentalHealthDay, and every other day, we’re here to make sure everyone with a mental health problem gets support and respect https://bit.ly/2Cy4w4n  #WMHD18

Taking care of yourself
You might not be talking about it, because mental health is still a taboo subject. But there are small, simple steps you can take to make your workplace mentally healthier.

Taking care of your staff
Our research confirms that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers. Starting a conversation about mental health doesn’t have to be difficult. We can show you how


Support and services in Camden

There are many mental health services available in Camden and this service directory aims to make it easier to find the support that is right for you.

We believe mental health and wellbeing is as important as looking after your physical health. Below you will find a list of the services available, what they offer and who they are best suited for. There may be a number of services that could help you boost your mental health and wellbeing.

Some organisations offer activities that will suit a wide range of people, rather than focusing on a particular activity or type of mental health support.

If you’re not sure where to start, you might find it useful to contact some of the service providers or have a conversation with your GP. 


The self-care sessions are open to parents, carers, patients and local Camden residents. There are 25 free available slots at each support session. Poster attached for your information - you will also find below a youtube link of the promotional video.

Starting from 11 October 2018, a Camden GP and a Camden pharmacist will deliver four workshops in locations across the Borough. The workshops will inform participants about what local services are available to them in addition to their GPs, and how they can better manage their health.  Attendees will receive a take-away booklet full of useful resources and details of Camden's health and wellbeing services.   All you have to do to register is click on the following link – click here.


Thursday 25th October at the London Irish Centre
