Dear Sir/Madam, As you all may be aware, Professor Catto has sent a circular to all doctors regarding revalidation. On page 12 of the booklet " A licence to Practise and Revalidation", the GMC quotes this " We will handle all the information we recieve in line with our responsibilities under the law particularly the Data Protection Act". All doctors expect the highest standards of confidentiality of their records within the General Medical Council. We all know that the GMC gives out every doctor home address to anyone who requests it. What happens to other data? I am a average doctor who discovered one morning that the GMC had conversed about me with a different Trust I had never worked at. My personal details were divulged to this Trust. This is a quote from a letter received by me on the 25th April 2003 . The letter was written by Ms Huntington who is the senior case worker at the GMC following a complaint made by me. " I have looked into this incident and can confirm that there has been an unfortunate error in our handling of personal data. Please accept our apologies for disclosing information about you without your consent" The information was provided verbally by a Ms Catherine Green to the Trust. I only discovered these remarks after a memo was sent to me from my friend at the Trust. The memo contained a description of the discussion that had taken place. How many doctors does this happen to? It would be interesting to note that the new revalidation regulations which have higher requirements of personal information being held by the GMC places many doctors in danger of their personal data being passed verbally by case workers at the GMC. In my circumstances, I had been assisting a PRHO victimised by Halton Hospital. This PRHO had been suspended for leafletting his friends about the way he was treated. Subsequently, the Trust began to seek information on his friends. I happen to be one of his friends. The GMC was more than eager to assist them.Three people have resigned from this Trust mysteriously over the last four months - Dr G Murphy, Dr McNamara and the Chief Executive. Kind Regards Dr Rita Pal NB Anyone wishing to request the letter from the GMC are free to email me. I have a scanned copy
