GPs told to shop patients

Our Campaign has been in the Press over the weekend. On Friday Sir Liam Donaldson Chief Medical Officer sent an email to all GP’s asking them to send the names and addresses of all patients who had signed our Opt Out Letter and wanted to opt out of the Summary Care Record. If GP’s did this it would be a breach of patient confidentiality.

There is also a very good thread at NO2ID.

Please support the campaign with donations and by signing our Opt Out Letter – mark the letter CONFIDENTIAL and send it to your GP.

Please contact us if you need further help.
