It may be a surprise to you to learn that the government is able to extract information from your medical record without your consent and has been able to do so for many years!
On the positive side this means that data can be used to plan health services more effectively and also look at disease patterns. On the negative side the government can sell this data to researchers and commercial concerns.
We at Spa Medical Centre have no control over this process. This is a government directive. Please click on the following link for a statement about our obligations to you and what you can do about it.
