Confidentiality killed the cat

I just spent the last half hour typing up a blog post about confidentiality, and constructing a framework for my future blogposts based upon and in accordance to my organisations Media Liaison Guidelines.

Until I read the header: INTERNAL DOCUMENT ONLY.

Frustration just set in.

But surely you see the irony: I would get the sack from this job not because I disclosed confidential patient details, but because of publishing an internal document how to avoid just such mishaps.

Off to bed now, gotta sleep over this one.
