Big brother to log your drinking habits and waist size as GPs are forced to hand over
The Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 1 February 2013 | Jack Doyle

Posted on 02/03/2013 6:29:46 AM PST by Texas Fossil

GPs are to be forced to hand over confidential records on all their patients’ drinking habits, waist sizes and illnesses.

The files will be stored in a giant information bank that privacy campaigners say represents the ‘biggest data grab in NHS history’.

They warned the move would end patient confidentiality and hand personal information to third parties.

Pelosi: "We have to pass the bill to see what is inside."

This law is in direct conflict with previous medical privacy laws.

Remember, anything that Obozo's administration says is a LIE. Nothing else can shield their intend.

Coming to Amerika.

The “secretary shall deem it to be so”.

Remember, in Obamugabe’s DEATH PANEL LAW, the Secretary of Health and Human Services has carte blanche—unlimited power—to demand anything from anyone regarding your health.

Even if you own a gun. Mental health and all that.

Did not expect that, found this on Drudge. Guess I should have read more closely.

Will re-examine.

Yep, they have already proposed forcing Doctors to question patients if they have guns in their household.

Sorry, I have no interest in sports. Never have. Ran track and played football in highschool. It ended there.

Am a news junkie and I love this country. I will resist oppression like my ancestors. It is in the DNA.

My GP asked that question, 3-4yrs ago. Since I CCW into his office 2x/yr, I said, “WTH do you think, Dr Mark?” Heh. He put down “No”.

My doctor is X-military and has more guns than I do. He is a very good friend. I know the response.

STDs can maim and kill. Better profile everyone’s sex habits (including promiscuity). For now, the health industry and academia support the sex positive agenda of “if it feels good, do it”.

One it considered a “birthright” while the other needs to be restricted “for your own good” (demon alcohol isn’t a “pure” as saintly cocaine or marijuana, apparently).

Good on him. All of our medical info/data has been computerized in massive healthcare systems’ databases, like Wellspan, Geisinger, Kaiser-Permanente etc, so it’s easily-shared and vulnerable to hacking. I knew this crap was coming, when I first saw computers show-up in the patient exam rooms, back in the mid-to-late-90s.

Its already been done in Minnesota. Fairview Clinics has made it a standard question, even when stopping by because of a case of the flu.

What will the idiot left do when they face the health facts associated with their protected minority homo class is exposed? AIDS is almost exclusively connected to that class, with an extension to street drug users by association.

That said, the price of our own lost privacy is not worth exposing them. The current left will never admit the connection. It does not fit their agenda.

They already do ask about guns in the home. People are already telling stories about taking their children to the hospital or urgent care for illnesses and being asked to LEAVE the room when it comes to the question. If the parent refuses to leave, they turn the computer monitor to the child only and ask them to read and then type the answer!

Have not seen it here. It may come, but I somehow doubt it.

Obamacare is going to be very difficult to actually implement. And it will definately fail. There is no way that the plan will work. BUT THAT is exactly the plan. To implode the system.

FUBO

exactly - so after the system crashes due to the intentional destructive nature of “ACA” - they will have to convince the nation that A)The implosion was the fault of insurance companies and republicans, and B)They have the solution — single payer.

There once was a time I would have predicted Americans were too smart to fall for this... but that time has passed..

Not all the nation is like that.

Subjection here will only come from conquest. Not treachery and deceit.

It will not come quickly nor without a price. Oppositon will come at the state level, not by neighborhood.

You can take that one to the bank.

My thoughts exactly. I think ppl got sucked in by “NHS”. England is so over. Why are they allowing this to happen? What is happening to the former world power that they are being so emasculated without a fight? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE OVER THERE!? (Yes, I know, we are in our throes, but they are OVER!)

How do the states fight a Supreme Court that appears to have been bullied into submission?

There is aanother sinister “upside” to this plan.
As the Death Panels reduce the lifespan, the financials for Soc Sec and Medicare improve giving the Fedgov even more to spend.

Oh it will come whether you or even the MD’s like it or not. With the electronic records system, responses to questions MUST be entered to continue with an appt, etc... If a question is skipped, when the practitioner tries to submit, it will say you have to enter, just like on any other computerized form. It won’t be at the md’s discretion not to ask because they don’t want to or don’t like the question. They may say, I’m sorry I don’t like this but I still have to ask, but they will have to log an answer and you will end up on some list accordingly.

Anyone in the UK that didn't see this coming raise your hand.

Then immediately move to France.
