British Gov't Creates Medical Online Database

Ad Feedback

The United Kingdom is creating a massive database by putting medical records online. And doctors warn its putting some patients records on it without their consent.

The government is supposed to inform patients their records are being put in the system, and give them the chance to opt out. But doctors say the project is moving too fast, giving patients no time to object.

Some fear these private records won't be safe from hackers. The program is costing $11 billion. Critics say it's a waste of money.

They say the British government needs to end its "obsession" with creating massive central databases.
