GPs held responsible for patient complaints over NHS data-sharing project, says ICO


I don't agree that patients should opt in rather than opt out. My view is that no identifiable data should be uploaded at all. Unidentified data is sufficient for research purposes. That way we can confidently wear our Caldicott Guardian badges, and the scientists get the useful data they need.
