GPs told to warn patients of imminent extraction of data from GP records


GPs, as you probably know, are the Data Controllers under the Data Protection Act. A perfect job by the government - GPs have to comply with the extraction (changes to legislation were made to support this) and yet they are responsible for informing patients (at their own cost). Caught in between both laws - fantastic.
