Debate: Should GPs back care.data?

Comment

Surely the real issue is that it should be patient choice and why does sharing information require my birthdate or my address / postcode / NHS number? Sharing information re numbers of visits to A&E, types of illness etc. is one things, but all the personal date is a step too far. Please Clare Gerada, I don't need to have your birth date or your address, but can I have your bank account details? What's the difference in you sharing those details with me alone, and you sharing my very personal details with the nation?
