We now learn from The Guardian today that the medical records in the new NHS database that can be shared with third parties including US health firms will not be anonymised:
“The data will be anonymised and given ‘codes’ that can be used to reveal the identity of the data’s owners if there is a ‘valid legal reason’.”
Remember this is an opt-out system rather than what it should be opt-in. You have until 23 June to opt-out via your GP.
Do this and contact your MP complaining how this has been forced through giving no time for the general public to object.
