Motion text

That this House notes that the National Data Guardian for Health and Social Care has written to all Integrated Care Systems, now running local health partnerships, warning that organisations could be processing confidential patient information without ensuring that the processing does not breach confidentiality; considers that this vindicates the refusal by Dr Shashikanth to share his patients' records with the local Primary Care Network, complying with his patients' wishes, despite the unacceptable pressures put upon him to do so by some within the NHS; and calls on the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to guarantee the right of general practitioners to abide by their patients' wishes to determine whom their data is shared with.

There are no withdrawn signatures for this motion.
