Re: What a fucking surprise..
But it's true!
The NHS hospitals gave the data to Google. So they may be correct in saying your GP won't sell your data. Your CCG or NHS Trust might, or they may give it away though, or it's a certainty that Google will be looking to commercially exploit the data they've already obtained.
Question remains why this keeps happening. Perhaps there's a naivety that data won't be commercially exploited, or if no money changes hands, it's somehow ethicial. If so, then perhaps those Trusts shouldn't be trusted with our data.
