HC Deb 15 October 1991 vol 196 cc136-7W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he last discussed with the Data Protection Registrar the matter of health record confidentiality and non-statutory guidance.

Mr. Dorrell

We have not held any such discussions with the Data Protection Registrar. The Department is working on guidance on the confidentiality of personal health information in the NHS. This will shortly be issued in draft form for consultation, and the Data Protection Registrar will be one of many whose comments will be sought.
