NHS central database

Comment 1st August 2010

Uploads of patients records is proceeding apace,  even though many people are unaware that their records are being uploaded, and have not had the chance to make an informed choice as to whether they want this: I understand this database contains many errors, and once you are on it your medical details are accessible to hundreds of thousands of people working for the NHS.

Why does this matter?

The errors could be dangerous.

There are other ways of ensuring that you get the right medical treatment in an emergency.

It's atrocious that one's medical details, some of which are very sensitive, are open to so many people who are not directly involved in your care- in very many cases, without the patient's knowledge that this is happening.

Didnt the coalition promise pre election to halt these uploads?
