Capita charges bereaved families £50 for access to deceased patient records

oh..the ethical wonders and standards of private outsourcing..the usual miserable inhumane record of incompetence like atos(allegedly responsible for thousands of suicides..why are the responsible politicians not in court?) and all the rest of them. entirely to be expected when you substitute public service as part of a unitary therefore efficient nhs with parasitism by a private unaccountable organisation(with laughable so called commercial confidentiality)making profit by causing inefficiency and waste. yet another success for the worst government short sighted mismanagement of the NHS since inception. so often it pursues short term policies that actually cost more in the long run. the whole private outsourcing agenda in the NHS has been and is a wasteful national disaster and has been done secretively by the back door without genuine public consent or understanding...a genuine utter disgrace.
