RCGP demands new publicity campaign to address 'crisis in confidence' over scheme


I agree, the leaflet does not really explain to patient that their seconday/community care data is already fished then putting the onus on to GPsurgeries to code records with two codes to ensure secondary care data in not onwardly used - disgraceful publicity campaign but we knew it was been done under sufference and not supplying the forms to patients to opt out was one step too far leaving GPS to source their own - then have the nerve to sanction GPs who feel very uncomfortable with the situation - I doubt very much that GPs will have considered opting out patients who don't have capacity to opt out themselves I thought we were supposed to live in a democracy - I am beginning to wonder No decision without me - what a lie that was
