In your junk mail on return to the UK - NHS option

Post by stevegwmonkseaton on Sun Feb 02, 2014 6:25 pm

For those of you from the UK that return infrequently and find a lot of junk mail. One of these items I almost trashed was linked to this SITE LINK Now I don't mind information being used as I know the benefits, but this underhand way and the suggested reasons being put forward is shameful and worrying... You may want to check it out.

Thanks Steve.
Just looked at the site and source link, so would not trust it that much, could be wrong though.

Geo, must admit that my main reason for visiting the site came from the NHS site HERE It was in the comments, many of which echo my concerns (more about the shameful way they have tried to implement this).

Ok site seems genuine, but you do have to opt out of letting your medical records out for insurance companies to view!!

Thanks for the link Geo. I came from another angle i.e. getting one of these bits of rubbish looking leaflets and never thought to look if there had been any news since the issue (picking ours up weeks.months later). If only a fraction of the article in the link you provided is true it's worse that the shameful situation I see the UK moving to...
