The medical records database, or Spine, that the Government is proposing to upload all of our medical records to (without consent, and quite possibly without opt-out ability as well) would be a gold-mine for such investigators, not just for journalists, for employers, insurers, and anyone with an axe to grind against you and access to one of the estimated 500,000 authorised users of this system.
Act now to demonstrate your opposition to this appalling proposal. The Big Opt Out, allied to NO2ID, is organising resistance to the scheme.
