Some patients have recently contacted the Patients’ Association asking for guidance with regard to the government’s plans to allow NHS Data to be made available to a third party. In essence, the decision remains a personal choice and not one that necessarily requires medical advice. At this point the Partners are reviewing the government guidelines as they continue to emerge and in any case, they note that the deadline to submit your response has been extended to September while the government considers its final policy statement. The Board of Trustees will release its own definitive statement when the position of the NHS generally and the Pinn Medical Centre in particular is clarified.
