Don't Tell Your GP's ANYTHING You Don't Have To

...well we haven't for years, but the Coroners and Justice Bill would give everyone an added reason not to.

UPDATE: There is a petition to sign here.

Phew...that's a relief.

I would like to have found it extroardinary that the gov't could even vaguely imagine that this proposal was acceptable, but given their previous history, it just didn't seem surprising at all.
