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

Comment

Another point is if you see a Consultant privately and the Consultant writes to your NHS GP that letter is NOT owned by the NHS. You paid for that consultation yet Kelsey and "care data" seem to think they own this data too and will hoover it up without patient consent. What is the ICO going to do to ensure consent is obtained for the use by the NHS of records that are private records not NHS ones? How will the ICO enforce this? Do we need to start saying to patients not let their Private Consultant write to their NHS GP or NHS Consultant?
