Anyone here had the form from the NHS recently?If you want to opt-out of their new uber database, you need to download a form off the 'net, print it and take it in-person to your local GP.Personally, I'm not at all convinced that our government, let alone the NHS has the capability to keep anything secure, and I'm not sure I want every one with any sort of access to the data having access, so I'm opting out.Shame it's such a PITA to do it though - however, it seems this is deliberate. If more than 0.5% of people opt-out then the system becomes unviable according to what I've been reading on the net.If you get the form and you want to opt-out, here is the form for Devon: http://www.devonpct.nhs.uk/documents/SCR/optout.pdfalthough it looks fairly generic, so I guess it's the same form for all over the country.Gordon
I'd love the NHS to have a good secure central database.I'd love for proper research organisations to have access to the relevant data.
I just know the insurance companies are going to get hold of it.... Maybe in twenty years... Tom te tom te tom -- The Mailing List for the Devon & Cornwall LUG http://mailman.dclug.org.uk/listinfo/list FAQ: http://www.dcglug.org.uk/linux_adm/list-faq.html
