NHS England bows to confidentiality concerns and launches £2m national publicity campaign on


I must take issue with assertion that the campaign is modelled on the information campaign for SCR. With SCR we wrote to patients individually practice by practice over a four year period, this was very expensive and did not have the same impact as a concentrated and co-ordinated national campaign would have done. This leaflet drop is a golden opportunity to raise public awareness about their choices with regard to the sharing of health information generally, not just Choices about local and national information sharing are becoming increasingly complex for practices and patients to understand and need to presented as a clear "menu" which patients can select from.
