NHS England have announced that the plans to share patient data have been postponed in order to give the public more time to learn about information sharing. There is now a dedicated help line which patients can call on 0300 456 3531. The line is open Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 8.00pm and on Saturdays from 9.00am to 3.00pm. A text phone service is also available on 0208 7428620
Here is a link which gives you information about the data sharing.
