checks and balances
I thoroughly support the police having access to medical records to aid their role in public safety.
Limited, specific access, granted by a court signed warrant.
The police keep spending their timing seeking non-crimes to target people then complaining they lack the resources to investigate theft and assaults, or to address inner-city youth knife crime, or stop people blocking roads and causing disruption to further political aims. Perhaps I'm cynical for thinking this is just yet another work avoidance measure.
