Opting out

If you have a patient who does not want us to collect and store the details about their cancer they can opt out. You should reassure them this will not affect the care they receive in any way. 

They can do this by downloading this form or simply email optout@phe.gov.uk or write to:

Director
National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service
Public Health England
Wellington House
133-155 Waterloo Road
London SE1 8UG

They will be taken through some security questions to confirm their identity, but after that, it’s a straightforward process and should only take a few days.
