'Coding' cockup blamed for NHS cough-up of confidential info against patients' wishes

Re: Just blame the coder

Yet another cock up prompted me to think about this issue again. As with the previous versions I conclude that I am not able to trust the system to ensure my privacy. I have opted out of the previous versions but of course each new incarnation requires a new opt-out. So I popped to the digital "How to manage your choice online" ( page and attempted to view my choices but was met with a "verification failed" error.

Has anyone made this work? Is there any intention to allow choice? There is a paper based alternative but it appears to require all sorts of proof of identity information. It is hard not to be cynical!
