Video: BHCS Patients & Lawyers Meet Over Files

March 18, 2019

A number of people attended a meeting at the Dr. E. F. Gordon Hall on Wednesday evening [March 13] as patients of the BHCS and Brown-Darrell medical clinics whose records were seized by members of the Bermuda Police Service in 2017 waited to hear an update from the lawyers.

Jerome Lynch QC asked any patients who wanted to hand over their records to put their hands up, which no one did, with Mr Lynch saying, “it is my view that these records are yours.”

One frustrated patient said, “I am so angry that this matter has been allowed to continue on that I think we should go to Government House and demand an end to this whole thing,”

At the end of the almost three-hour long meeting, the patients vowed to meet again to discuss the matter further amongst themselves.

    Trying to understand all of this. Are these all the people whose files are in police possession? Are there people out there that are not concerned about whether the police have their files or who perhaps do not know that the police have their files?

    What reasons do the police have for still holding on to these medical records? From what we ( the public ) understand, the medical records were seized as evidence a lawsuit that the former ( OBA ) Government filed in a Massachusetts court against BHCS / Lahey Clinic. The case was dismissed on March 8, 2018. The ruling judge said that “Bermuda has not shown that it suffered any injuries in the United States as a result of the alleged scanning scheme.“

    So what reasoning are the police using as justification for holding on to these medical records? They should release the records posthaste otherwise they are exposing themselves to a potential lawsuit.
