General Medical Council (GMC) -
The GMC have restructured their guidance with the aim of making it easier to apply in practice, and have expanded advice in a range of areas, including on sharing information about adults at risk of harm, and doctors’ data protection responsibilities. They have also reviewed several other pieces of explanatory guidance which tackle particular themes of confidentiality doctors commonly encounter. They are seeking views on these changes.
