Risk patients will be identified by anonymised GP record data, NHS England admits

Comment

There is an issue at the moment as the mechanism to block all data leaving the Surgery has not yet been put in it. This has been confirmed by NHS England and Mr Tim Kelsey senior staff we have been in touch with them at The Big Opt Out. It has additionally been confirmed by a local Informatics Director whom we had a meeting with along with a patients GP. We currently have patients who cannot access GP services due to no mechanisms being place to block data leaving the GP Surgery. I am talking about all GPES data not just care.data.
