Third Time Lucky?

Wirral has tried twice previously to get our patient information into private sector databases. And twice, the residents of Wirral have knocked them back following consultations (of sorts).

Given that one of the companies mentioned is a USA company and given that the whole purpose of this ‘project’ is that information will be disseminated between the three companies, it seems to me to be nothing more than a backdoor route into what Wirral NHS has been itching to do for years in order to sell our health information to all and sundry.
