NHS enables Facebook to track surfers on health info website

Hi All
Just seen this:

Privacy experts say 'ick, germs'
Privacy experts have expressed dismay at a decision by the NHS to allow Facebook and Google to track users on one of its sites.
The NHS has integrated its NHS Choices site into the Facebook Connect platform, so that surfers can express an interest ("like") for pages on the site and share content with their friends and contacts on Facebook. Google is also able to track the behaviour of individuals on the NHS Choices website, online privacy firm Garlik warns.

This is shocking behavior from the NHS.
