GPs urged to 'proactively' support NHS data-sharing publicity campaign starting next week


Suggest get media savvy and produce a youtube promo, to dispel myths and cover all the legal issues. If it is "simples" this would demystfy the complexity. If this is for care planning and not for acute use.. just pseudo annoymise at time of extract... using same algorithm for each extracted source. The HES data gets morphed to CES, but this should come back as feed to GP systems, so at point of care we might stand a chance of unpicking the costs and complexity as well as checking validity of tariff ... a lot of this may be a good idea, but central presentation of the project seems to be done on the cheap. IC needs to have a legal judgement on whether the mail drop fulfils DPA requirements . It is not one to dodge or dump on GP's
