By TruePublica: Here is another public disaster in the making. A disaster because a new NHS patient record system won’t work after billions of desperately needed taxpayer cash is poured down the drain again. A disaster because patient records will be stolen in the same quantities as they are in the USA even if it does work. A disaster because cyber-criminals will blackmail individuals with stolen health data. A disaster because the expected rise of private healthcare insurance will determine who gets cover and at what price. A disaster because the government will add patient data to its new centralised biometric database without anyone’s consent.
