TYPE 1 OPT OUT
Last week, the Financial Times published information about opting out of Healthcare data sharing. Changes have been made within NHS England, so those in England, are able to opt-out of their data being shared with third parties. This is only applicable to England, and changes have not been made in Wales.
YOUR HEALTH NEEDS.
Every year the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board conduct an intermediate medium term plan to identify the changing needs of patients in our area. The aim of the plan is to develop localised systems that are responsive to the needs of the local community. In order to do this, it is essential for them to consult with the local community on what they believe are the biggest needs for their communities health and wellbeing.

COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE
🌍VACCINE PASSPORT INFORMATION🌍
Some of you may be wondering, ‘how can I get a vaccine passport or certificate for travel?’
We are working with the UK Government to enable Welsh citizens to access the NHS App for vaccine certificates, but this service is not yet available.
In the meantime, for people in Wales who have had two doses of the vaccine and need to urgently travel to a country which requires covid vaccination:
From 24 May, there will be a temporary emergency telephone number to request a COVID-19 vaccination certificate for international travel.
This should only be used if you urgently need to travel to a country which requires vaccine certification and you are not able to either quarantine or provide tests to meet country entry requirements. DO NOT use this service for non-urgent requests.
Individuals should check entry requirements before travelling.
For those who have not yet completed their vaccine course and for countries that don’t accept vaccine proof at this time, people should continue to follow existing entry requirements like negative PCR tests.
Even if you’ve been vaccinated, you still have to follow the same requirements as non-vaccinated people when you return to the UK.
📍Do not request a vaccination certificate from your GP or vaccination centre📍
NHS Wales is working hard to ensure everyone can have access to a vaccination we cannot divert resources away from this very important task.
We will not be able to answer any specific queries regarding this matter through Facebook. Please see the Welsh Governement website for further information.
