Headline 'will allow police access to patient records without informing GPs'


I'm sorry, does this mean the 'you don't have to worry it will be non-identifiable date extraction' means they can identify you after all? How can patients who have opted out still have their data given with identifiers stripped? I thought, when I opted out, that opting out meant no data was transferred.
