Home Office is seeking new ways to obtain GP data on patients


Interestingly it has always been a principle that we will not give over this sort of information to the police unless there was a significant danger to the patient or public. Breaking this principle would put us on the wrong side of the ICO and GMC no matter what MoU the police had with the anybody. The case for the Home Office having access is much weaker and so would also put us in serious jeopardy with the ICO and the GMC.
