"You always been in private practice Doc?" "Until recently anyway..." 3 September, 2007

Reference Number: DCDL-0003875

Shows a doctor's surgery with a patient sitting on a bed being examined by the doctor who is handing a page of notes to an insurer who stands grinning beside him. The doctor says he has been in private practice until recently. Refers to the fact that Insurance companies are demanding access to patients' confidential medical records as they try to shed riskier clients. In the past they simply asked for medical details about the claim involved. Many are concerned about breaches of privacy.
