"“The data processed in NHS SBS’ India offices includes GP registrations and
ophthalmic forms. These do not contain any clinical data. _Data does not
leave the UK - it resides on servers hosted in the UK and is accessed from
India_. "

That seems to me to be one of these clearly untrue things that someone has
decided to repeat over and over in the hope people will believe they believe

Data is data, and if it is accessed in India data has reached India.
