Headline 'paused' yet again due to confidentiality review


Did anybody notice the silent revloution that took place recently - The whole responsibility for care and transfer of patient records was entrusted to a private company Capita who is taking over from the PCAs. We have had a hue and cry with regards to Summary Care Records being available to Inusrance Companies but not a whisper this time. And this, despite NHSE agreeing that the ''short period of due diligence is (still) ongoing...''- as per the publication Gateway Ref nr :03947 dated 14.08.2015 Would you entrust so much sensitive data to a Private company before the due diligence process was complete? Speaks volumes of our lawmakers.
