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


Christine Earwaker 11.35am What happens if people have both codes set? I do not want my data to leave my GP surgery. But I also know that data has already been taken from hospitals and is stored in the HSCIC databases. How can I prevent data leaving my GP surgery and prevent it leaving the HSCIC databases? It seems I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't with the two codes you mention (which are currently BOTH set in my own records). There is a fundamental contradiction in the use of them and nobody can tell us which ones we should ask to be set if we want to retain our privacy to the maximum level allowed.
