Must Get Round to Opting Out
I must get round to actually opting out of the Summary Care Records.
I downloaded the form (PDF), printed it out (it's a single page), and filled it in. But I haven't got round to sending it to my GP surgery. I was umming and erring about whether to post it with a letter explaining why I was sending it, or whether to take it in person instead. I was also being lazy and just not getting around to it, too, though. Think I'll write a letter and post it. I just find it easier to explain things in writing, and I certainly want my GP surgery to know why I'm opting out - Big Brother.
As for the following:-
"The data regulator found some good central practises but was concerned that these were not followed locally."
I can already see that being used as the basis for government spin/propaganda in support of further centralisation, the NHS Care Records Service, etc.
