Half of GPs will block NHS database

A Guardian poll has found that 50% of GPs will refuse to upload medical records to the central NHS "Spine" without their patients' permission. 80% think that the Spine will put patient confidentiality at risk. (As Glyn points out: so 30% will allow the records to be uploaded anyway?)

Meanwhile, the mother of Connecting for Health chief Richard Grainger has revealed that her son failed his computing degree. (Thanks, Fearghas!)
