NHS England allowed to share GP data outside recommended 'safe havens'

Comment

anonymous at 12.08 You really think it's ok for Hunt to do this? without the approval of patients? How many surgeries are even notifying their patients of this new development. Hopefully you misread what is happening: "Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has approved plans for NHS England to waive common confidentiality laws for six months under a legal exemption called section 251, allowing patient identifiable data to be passed to commissioners and support units."
