Other ways to manage your choice

Set a choice by phone

To manage your choice online, you must be able to verify your identity. You can't do this if you haven't registered an email or mobile number with an NHS practice.

Contact the NHS Digital Contact Centre to verify your identity and discuss your data sharing choices. We may be able to guide you through the service or set a choice on your behalf.

Call: 0300 303 5678

Open: 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays)

Set a choice by print and post

If you are unable to use the online service for any other reason, you can use a paper print-and-post form to set a choice instead.

Set a choice on behalf of another individual

You can also set a choice on behalf of another individual by proxy. For example, a parent may want to set a choice on behalf of their child.
