NICE Guideline NG227 - Advocacy services for adults with health and social care needs

Opt-out is when a person is automatically referred to the advocacy service unless they opt out of the referral. The opt-out system is designed to ensure that people who are eligible for advocacy are made aware of independent mental health advocacy services and have the opportunity to access them. An opt-out measure may overcome barriers to access.
