Consultation description

We sought views in this consultation on the implementation of amendments 4,5,6 and 7 only. Our policy aim in making these amendments is to ensure that transparent measures are in place to allow the transfer of information as necessary for all those with EMR functions (the Secretary of State, the Delivery Body and the LCCC) to carry out those functions as smoothly and efficiently as possible whilst being alive to, and managing, any potential conflicts of interest which may arise by maintaining effective safeguards to ensure the safekeeping of confidential EMR information. We were grateful for your views on each of the proposed changes described in this consultation notice.
