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


If we share our data we make ourselves liable to being sued by our patients who quite rightly will argue that they were not consulted properly, if we do not share our data then we are liable to be sued by NHS England, we are damned if we do and damned if we don't, lets face it, I doubt NHS England will be able to sue us all with the cuts they are facing to our resources whereas it only takes one patient to sue us for us to be in a real pickle. The safest strategy is to opt out all our patients and take our chances with big brother England
