Changes to medical confidentiality - ORG Sheffield event

Significant changes to how your medical data is handled are happening now. Medical data that was previously under the control of your GP is going to be uploaded to a central location within the NHS and shared with other organisations for a variety of purposes. We'll be discussing how to opt-out and stop your data from being uploaded. We'll also be discussing the implications of this change to how medical data will be used and shared and how it can be beneficial in some ways and damaging in others.
