01) I do not have a problem with my doctor sharing relevant information with say the hospital, but I do wen it is been soled off to drug companys, plus soled off to insurance companies, plus soled off to research companies, and so on!

That's precisely what the EU measure is trying to regulate: drug companies (aka researchers) using the data.
Basically, for you this is a good news story.

02) From what I understand the database will be run by google London on google's servers in washington DC.

I'm pretty sure no decision has been made.  The national database project only collapsed a couple of months ago: I'd be surprised if they're already up and running with a 3rd party solution already: there hasn't been enough time for the tendering process let alone the post mortem and consequent blame storming.
From what I've seen, parts of the press have been running scare stories about these data being handed to Google, but while I wouldn't put that past the current govt, for the moment it's all just idle speculation.

04) The uk government wants all information on line, sow thay can save money by closing down government departments, plus make money of your data by selling it off.

The primary driver is to make data more easily shareable around the NHS - i.e. back to your first point about the hospital having access to your GP records
The revenue part is (in theory) a secondary benefit to offset some of the cost and also - to be fair - because access to anonymised data should help pharma companies and other researchers which in turn should help us with advances in medical therapies.

I like a good anti government conspiracy as much as the next bloke but there is enough and then there is OTT.

Now there's a great idea for a thread; your favourite conspiracy theory. I'll go for Sandy Hook and the Boston Marathon bombing were 'in house' jobs

Re: NHS Database

sandy hook, now theres a conspiracy too far, apparently according to the nutters the events depicted live on world news were all fake and it was really a hit gone wrong and all the kids were scooped into wit-pro to live their lives elsewhere sans family........
theres a few things I believe were known about in advance and allowed to "playout" but not that many that were conceived, orchestrated and conducted by state agencies for political reasons, of course there is little difference between allowing something to happen even though you know full well whats coming weeks in advance (the Coventry conundrum) and creating the event and carrying it out yourself.....

Re: NHS Database

Back on topic, the database is currently being set up. Leaflets have been sent to all households outlining the plans. I received mine about 10 days ago.

Hit Quote instead of Edit and didn't realise until too late - again!
Unless I'm missing something, there's no way to delete a post or even report it in order to have the mods remove it (if you hit report, you get a very sarcastic comment about how ridiculous it is that you should want to report your own post)

Yeah, that is annoying to get that message..... best thing to do is to send the Mod a PM and ask him to delete it ....  Wink
