On Tuesday Phil Booth from http://medconfidential.org gave an extremely engrossing and enjoyable talk about the government’s care.data plan.
At the core of the talk was explaining how the plan that doesn’t change anything is actually a whole new mess of interconnected agencies, some of which have competing aims.
He was also able to give important practical advice which we’ll be repeating at our next event – a Mass Opt Out where we’ll be on hand to help you keep you and your children safe by preventing the transfer of your (un-anonymised !) medical records to a government department with a poor track record of treating them with the respect they deserve. Hope to see you there !
