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

Comment

More luddite comments, typical of clinicians, who seem intent on holding up the use of technology in the NHS as long as they can. Surely the proper response should be "research does indeed need better patient data, and we, the RCGP will engage immediately and deeply with DH or NHS England or whoever to iron out our real security worries." Personally, I believe the scheme is technically a Bridge too Far, but that too should be debated coolly.
