An updated version of the BMA guidance ‘Focus on Subject access requests for insurance purposes’ was circulated to LMCs recently. The guidance includes updated advice for practices on responding to SARs for insurance purposes, following further dialogue between the GPC’s IT Subcommittee, BMA’s Ethics department and the Information Commissioner’s Office. There is also advice on responding to SARs from third parties for non-insurance purposes, for example a solicitor acting on behalf of a client.
