The Authority's response to GMC 2016 consultation on revised confidentiality guidance.


We welcome the chance to comment on the revised GMC guidance on confidentiality. This is an important and complex area and it is positive that the GMC have taken the provision of guidance so seriously. It is important that patients can have confidence that doctors will keep their personal information confidential and only share it for very specific and clear reasons.
