CFH Staff Get Private Health Insurance!

It would seem from this job advert for the DH Connecting For Health Project based in Leeds which run the NHS Care Records Service that CFH staff get Private Health Insurance. It shows how confident they are of the NHS Care Records Service that they feel the need to offer their staff Private Health Insurance no doubt to protect their privacy.

If CFH staff attend a private hospital this will keep their details off the SUS database and from effectively being sold to private companies. See my previous post.

The DH Connecting for Health project seem to be saying that the rest of us can get lost .
