In regards to convid opting out won’t change anything. 6.2: Communicable diseases and risks to public health The national data opt-out does not apply to the disclosure of confidential patient information required for the monitoring and control of communicable disease and other risks to public health. This includes any data disclosed where Regulation 3 of The Health Service (Control of Patient Information) Regulations 2002 provides the lawful basis for the common law duty of confidentiality to be lifted. Public Health England oversees the use of this legal gateway on behalf of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. Regulation 3 allows confidential patient information to be lawfully processed with a view to: diagnosing communicable diseases and other risks to public health recognising trends in such diseases and risks controlling and preventing the spread of such diseases and risks monitoring and managing: outbreaks of communicable disease incidents of exposure to communicable disease the delivery, efficacy and safety of immunisation programmes adverse reactions to vaccines and medicines risks of infection acquired from food or the environment (including water supplies) the giving of information to persons about the diagnosis of communicable disease and risks of acquiring such disease.
