GPC calls for urgent talks over public awareness of care.data scheme

Comment

Dear Dr.Nagpaul, Our Practice Participation Group members were very suprised and cross when the nature of care.data was explained to them. Now that the PPG has voted against same should we be asking patients to opt in rather than opt out? We are in a dilemma due to the legal ramifications. Could GPC threaten to walk out of the NHS without active opt in as people and newpapers will be with us on this issue and we can leave the NHS on a moral high ground as the government no longer seems to value the principles of social health and NHS. If we don`t stand for something we will fall for everything.
