The NHS is selling off your medical records see here for how much they are charging for it! From April it will include GP data. We discovered this in 2008 when we got the story on the front page of Sunday Telegraph see here so all political parties seem to have this plan. It has been sold since 2008 but on a smaller scale as the NHS did not have the IT infrastructure in place to support it on a larger scale. The GP side did not have the IT infrastructure until this year although it has been planned for at least 4 years.
|Per year per dataset3||
|Fee per table type4 (charged for tabulations only)||
A single year of non-sensitive inpatient data will cost £854 (£480 + £320 + £54)
2 years of non-sensitive inpatient and outpatient data will cost £1,336 (£480 + 2*£320 + 4*£54)
