In an article published in the Guardian today. GPs warn over plans to share patient data with third parties in England.
Doctors have warned that plans to pool medical records on to a database and share them with third parties could erode the relationship between them and patients.
The warning came as the Royal College of GPs wrote to NHS Digital urging it to better communicate with the public about the plans and their options for opting out.
Critics have voiced concerns over the NHS Digital plans, which would put the medical histories of more than 55 million patients into a database available to academic and commercial third parties for research and planning purposes.
The health secretary, Matt Hancock, first announced the plan in April via blog posts on the NHS Digital website and flyers at GP surgeries.
Being as we, the general public, can not see these flyers at GP’s surgeries because of Covid restriction. Also how many of are even aware of NHS Digital and what it does?.
Keep an eye on this. As it is trying to be sneaked out with as little as a months notice to opt out.
