Best Interests for patients is an IG issue

 
"Best interests" is a term that has been used in IG circles for some time and not just specifically in relation to capacity issues with service users of mental healthcare. When working at various MHTs and Social Services departments I have been involved with senior clinicians/social workers in decisions to provide data subject access requests based upon acting in the best interests of the patient/service user. There is currently ongoing work with major stakeholders in developing guidance and other materials.
