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


We we think we are not data controllers in principle anymore the profession needs to make that clear to the ICO. Perhaps we stop all computerised notes and go back to Lloyd George notes until it is sorted. A thought... we could have a practice based code for all patient contact details so the SystmOne contact details are only readable with the code which we keep control of. The Home Office would have to beat the code word and codebook out of you.
