As you read this, people's medical details are being uploaded to a system of central databases called the Summary Care Record, without their explicit, informed consent. This scheme has been criticised by the British Medical Association and security experts.
Manchester NO2ID will be running a public information stall in St. Ann's Square, telling people about Summary Care Records and helping them make an informed choice about opting out. We'll also help them stay in touch with No2ID and keep themselves informed.
We'll meet in the square itself at 2pm to set up shop; feel free to join us to lend a hand or just chat. You don't need any experience or equipment, just a bit of time to spare and a friendly smile!
