Requests for disclosure of data for secondary purposes

Doctors often receive requests for patient data for secondary uses. These requests may come from researchers, from NHS managers who require the data for health service planning or from private companies providing risk stratification services, for example.
This document provides guiding principles to assist LMCs and practices in considering how to respond to these types of requests.
The guidance is available on the BMA website.
