It's not that long ago that £10 billion+ was spaffed on an NHS IT system that was lacking the "I" and the "T" part...

Home Office refuses to enforce privacy code on NHS staff using video
Surveillance camera commissioner’s advice that trusts be required to comply with code to protect patients is rejected
Wow, what a lovely early Christmas present for Australians: A crypto-busting super-snoop law passes just in time
US told to quit sharing data with human rights-violating surveillance regime. Which one, you ask? That'd be the UK
Re: may not have been invited to ... child immunisation, bowel cancer screening
The bowel cancer screening results *letter* tells you you probably don't have it. Also that just because the results did not detect any, it doesn't mean you have none....
As for child immunisation...parents opting for the "fuck-off I don't want my child immunised" option are increasing every time a newspaper prints a "immunisation leads to autism" story...
Re: Machines instead of GPs
Speaking personally....from the GP consultation of lower abdominal pain, to the blood test of raised PSA, then MRI and onto biopsy, took 3 weeks. MRI performed at 1830z on a Saturday evening (the MRI suite is run 24/7)...pre-op assessment at 1745z, Friday. Biopsy a week later. It would have been a few days faster, but I dithered a bit over having biopsy probes inserted into me via the area between my legs. The other route is through the wall of the rectum...
Re: It's just a BS "reason" to allow patient data to be sold off
Then use MRI for the scans...
Current detection for prostate cancer starts with basic (PSA/DRE) then onto an MRI scan lower abdomen/pelvis...if anything suspicious is detected then a prostate biopsy is arranged using the MRI scan overlaid with an ultrasound image to sample the area of interest.. Quite frankly, modern xray machines use much lower doses...and even CT scanners use less now, than xray machines did 20 years ago.
Re: From the department of bleeding obvious
Sure...just so you know, we will be reliant upon the "public" facing GPS, which can be switched-off as the controllers want, or made inaccurate as they want.
Also, Galileo is better (theoretically) than either the USA/Russian?Chinese systems...
Presumably, SSTL will be departing for EU pastures new soon then...
The NHS data, even the highly personal data, has been available to the DWP for years, and is shared with various departments of local councils.
That's without the Digital economy Act...which authorised data sharing between all govt departments.
Here is the NHS confidentiality policy...
All very interesting.
Now, about the road outside.
Terraced houses, with around 1.5 cars per house. No off-road parking. I'm sure the picture is familiar.
Try charging your car with a footpath in-between the house and car. Try charging it from the on-road charger, which won't get installed anytime soon, because the local substation cannot handle the extra load. Never mind balancing the load...
Re: The 2 heads of Worzel ..Slurping WiFI/Daily location data to enforce the BBC Licence Fee?
Dunno about that.
They send a letter to my flat every three months threatening me with court if I don't buy a TV licence.
Addressed to the guy who used to live there a few years ago, until he died.
I even told them he was no longer living.
They then asked me if I had his new address.
They still send threats to my address...
So..the new bill gives the govt extremely wide "rights" to allow third parties, outside govt, to process data collected by govt (depts) for whatever reason they want...including collected health data, down to individual level, and you're moaning about "data fetishists"?
Remind me again about the massive amount of personal hospital health data released to organisations, unanonymised?
