13:00 Welcome and Introduction - Dr Geoff Schrecker, RCGP Patient Data Choices Clinical Champion, sets out the aims of the day

13:15 RCGP Patient Data Choices Project - Joe Besford, RCGP Innovation Programme Manager, provides an overview of the PDC project and how it will support general practice teams to confidently advise patients on data sharing and to uphold the national data opt-out in their own practice.

13:30 Understanding the National Data Opt-out - An overview of the changes and requirements of the national data opt-out in the context of general practice. Topics covered will include when an opt-out applies, what it applies to, how it is applied, building trust and patient empowerment, and where this fits within the context of the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This session aims to help set the scene and ensure everyone is fully aware of the implications of the national data opt-out when it is implemented.

14:30 Tea & coffee

14:45 The National Data Opt-out and My Practice - A facilitated session that will look at aspects of the national data opt-out in more detail. Delegates will work in groups and rotate through different topics and the guidance that the RCGP will provide in its toolkit. Delegates will have an opportunity to ask questions in relation to their own practice and discuss what additional supporting guidance is needed from the RCGP through the PDC project. Findings will be presented back to the room.
