Headline

GP leaders consider boycott of NHS England's data extraction programme

Comment

I absolutely love the last paragraph, which is loaded with menace. Seems to me that if one reverses the logic that putting up posters in a GP’s surgery constitutes consent then the putting up of a poster stating that all patients will have the exclusion code put on their notes unless they wish the HSCIC access, in which case the code would be removed, is just as valid. And what then? NHS England comes breathing fire? Really? Push comes to shove I am retired and they can go forth and multiply. I am truly astounded the red tops haven’t got hold of this massive intrusion of the state into people lives.
