Good afternoon

I am most grateful to you for your email of 11 September 2015 – a full, clear and prompt response to my Freedom of Information request about data protection of health records. Thank you.

You may be interested to learn, following responses from practices so far, specific dissent codes entered (as a percentage of the total number of patients registered) vary between 0.1% and 9% depending somewhat on the location of the practice — rates are higher, for example, in University practices. Between 0.3% and 55% of patients have opted for online services in different practices.

Kind regards

Peter Williams
