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

Comment

nhs england is responsible for this mess by their incredible incompetence right from the beginning introducing this scheme.also there is i believe no evidence that mass health info will provide better info than properly scientifically selected samples. they tried to introduce this by sinister stealth then when exposed they grudgingly agreed that people could opt out--without proper informed consent so then they decided to waste more clinical time by passing this task to gps without our consent either and naturally without providing any resources to do same;and simultaneously damaging further the trust between gps and patients. this ''organisation'' nhs england is an abject disaster clearly confirming again it is unfit to administer the english health service.the scots and welsh do a better job......
