The blue and white card cometh!

This is the last posting until the lap-top is mended.

Truly.

Check out this USA Website:

HEALTH DIALOGUE

And maybe surf around till you find this quotation:

“I believe we need to listen to patients’ experience and expectations to forge a new partnership with doctors, nurses and other practitioners and together produce a way forward that will lead to an NHS that is changing to be truly patient-led and ever more responsive to their needs.”

-Gordon Brown,
Prime Minister, July 2007″

Then read this:

” EVERY adult in Wirral is to be unwittingly signed up to a privately-run telephone health advice line by the local Primary Care Trust.

Anyone who received a blue and white postcard through their letter boxes last week mentioning the proposed Wirral Keep Well scheme will now have their private health information stored “in a safe, secure environment” by an American-owned private call centre firm based in Boston, Massachusetts.

To ensure your information is not shared you must write to your GP practice manager telling them you want to opt out within two weeks of receiving the card, it says……..”

US FIRM HAVE ALL YOUR HEALTH DETAILS

You’ll need to scroll down a bit till you find the post that says “WIRRAL KEEP WELL.” Then you’ll need to click on a link on that post.

All a bit of a pest…….

And then, if you can be bothered, read this:

PROFESSIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE – DRAFT MINUTES

More UK taxpayers money drifting across the Atlantic.

However:

“virtualy all the GP’s on Wirral have signed up to this scheme and this has followed careful debate.”

Also:

“The ‘opt out’ approach follows Queen’s Counsel advice”

“The ‘opt out’ approach has also been agreed by the BMA.”

And:

The folks in Norfolk and Surrey like it.

That’s all right then…….

(Wonder how many folks in Norfolk and Surrey really know what it’s about)

(In fact, come to think of it, wonder how many agreeable Wirral GPs really know what it’s about!!)

(Hmm… wonder if the BMA know what it’s about)

This will CREEP!

This is what The Witch Doctor posted in January.
