This may seem off topic, but no. Plans to create a database state encompassing health records should be a concern to all those who question government policy on nutrition and degenerative disease, such as their demonization of cholesterol.

Currently, a major risk is the impending hook up of health records into this big brother system. This scheme is called the Summary Health Records.

The ‘Summary Care Record’ (SCR) is an electronic record of information about you: government claim this will be “important information about your health”. It’s up to you; I quote: “If your GP practice does not hear from you by 21st June 2010 it will be assumed you are happy to have a Summary Care Record and the process of creating a record for you will begin”. CLICK HERE to find out more about opt outs.

But imagine this, if one day your refusal to take statins or knowledge of your high fat diet was used to ration services or used against you, e.g. via child protection services. Indeed, children have already been removed for being obese, so, the use of "indicators" like cholesterol and diet as evidence can't be far off. Indeed, the word summary is also a legalese word that refers to extra judiciary legal proceedings, e.g. summary justice. This would explain a lot about the apparently contradictory nature of the name, because these records will be comprehensive, not a summary.

Much has changed since the days when the patient doctor relationship was as private as your relationship with a Priest at confession.

I recommend people opt out and let their friends and family know about the option to opt out.
