Jeremy Hunt MP has agreed to let our medical records be sold, without our consent, by the NHS, to basically anyone who wants them. As usual, this is being sold to us as ‘improving patient care’. Unless people withdraw their consent for this to happen, it will take place within a matter of weeks, without their knowledge.

What most people don’t know is that unless they specifically request their GP to maintain the confidentiality of these records, they are consenting to letting all of their records, conversations etc. be released to whoever.
Anyone wishing to inform their GP should visit the following website.
There, they will find a letter written by a concerned GP to download, print and complete, sign and deliver to their GP. If people feel strongly, as I do, that this is wrong, then they should consider signing the petition at
