Redirecting confidential patient information

From May 2015, PCS sites were required to stop redirecting confidential patient information on behalf of GP practices, as this process did not comply with NHS England information governance or current legislation.  Your practice should mark envelopes ‘return to sender’ and send the information back (in bulk/ batches if necessary) to the provider who sent it initially. NHS England confirmed this process in a letter to GP Practices in May 2015.  Please click here to view this information.
