HSCIC promises not to count care.data opt outs at GP practice level

Comment

It is, perhaps, telling that even the programme director doesn't appear to understand the default opt-in setting. If high opt-out practices were to be challenged, it would be a case of "why have you been so effective in raising awareness of the scheme resulting in opt outs" rather than "why haven't you got more of your patients to sign up?"
