GPs told to inform patients of 'state snooping' on sick note records

Comment

It seems GP's are allowing themselves to be used by DWP to pursue its punitive welfare to work policies. Islington CCG are piloting Maximus/DWP employment coaches in six surgeries. This is a trend that will corrode people's trust in their GP's. Do you not get it? This is institutionalised violence against people who need our support and care, perpetrated in the name of an ideology of scroungers, the work-shy, the welfare-dependent. These are the policies of a sick society - if we continue to passively go along with it.
