NHS England looks at expanding extractions to include 'sensitive' patient information


If I have been to see my GP, I gave him/her info in confidence for the GP to use to treat me. for the Govt to think it is perfectly ok for it to grab that info that does not belong to it, and to sell it or make it available to anyone else. The NHS owns the record but the info on the record does not belong to the NHS or the Govt it belongs to me and was only given to the GP and only for the GP to use as appropriate. What is even more disgraceful and immoral is the lack of action to block this by those whose job it is supposed to be to protect us, e.g. the Info Commissioner.
