Just noticed this thread. There are huge confidentiality issues here. I am an NHS Manager and an extremely known opponent to the new NHS IT system. For my information about this it is worth looking at www.e-health-insider.com
An example is a hospital sms a 17 year old girl who has a hospital appointment and her parents do n't know anything about it. The mobile phone is on the coffee table!!!
I shall be on the "Tonight" programme shortly abou these issues. Sir Trevor MacDonald is sending a film crew to interview me on Wed!!!
