How can I opt out of the IDCR?

You can opt out of sharing your information at any time by:

  • completing the IDCR opt out form
  • emailing
  • writing to IDCR Co-ordinator, NHS Doncaster CCG, Sovereign House, Heavens Walk, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN4 5HZ
  • ringing 01302 566050

But please think carefully before making this decision as sharing your health and social care information will make it easier for Doncaster services to provide the best treatment and care for you.

If you opt out then later change your mind, you can come back in by completing the IDCR opt back in form

You can also choose to have your record deleted from the IDCR. To discuss this option and request deletion please contact the IDCR Co-ordinator on 01302 566050 or email

  • Please note that even if you opt out of sharing your data, or request deletion of your data from the IDCR, your information may still be shared between health and social care professionals caring for you by letter, email, fax or ‘phone.
