Update: Care.data put on hold

Comment

Patients should not have to opt out of any scheme. Being able to opt in respects people's autonomy. Having to opt out is Big Brother tactics. As for the information leaflet - when will those in authority realise that withholding detail on risk/harm/negatives (eg screening, health checks etc) instead of being completely unbiased and open displays contempt, destroys trust - and backfires.
