Press release from the Democratic Labour Party with regards to an article titled “BRA should not have data on Barbadians’ medical conditions” on March 16, 2017 “http://www.loopnewsbarbados.com/content/bra-should-not-have-data-barbadians-medical-conditions

A response from the Hon. Christopher Sinckler M.P., Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs

“I have spoken to the Revenue Commissioner who is not aware that any such thing was done. Audits of pharmacies have and will continue as is possible under law. It is entirely possible for such audits to be conducted without having access to anyone’s personal medical information. Why would that be necessary? An invoice and receipt for payment on a prescription don’t carry patient names.

It is foolishness. Dr. Sonia Browne happens to be my medical doctor and my name is not written on any prescription receipt. Auditors deal with receipts. Besides in the case of drug service prescriptions which go into the Ministry of Health (drug service) when the pharmacies submit the counterfoil for reimbursement purposes, how is the confidentiality of the patients medical information handled?”

“Aren’t prescriptions and receipts not submitted there too?”
