A prominent Tory MP on the powerful health select committee has questioned how the entire NHS hospital patient database for England was handed over to management consultants who uploaded it to Google servers based outside the UK.
Sarah Wollaston, who practised as a family doctor and is now a Conservative backbencher, tweeted: “So HES [hospital episode statistics] data uploaded to ‘google’s immense army of servers’, who consented to that?”
The patient information had been obtained by PA Consulting, which claimed to have secured the “entire start-to-finish HES dataset across all three areas of collection – inpatient, outpatient and A&E”.
The data set was so large it took up 27 DVDs and took a couple of weeks to upload. The management consultants said: “Within two weeks of starting to use the Google tools we were able to produce interactive maps directly from HES queries in seconds.”
The revelations alarmed campaigners and privacy experts, who queried how Google maps could have been used unless some location data had been provided in the patient information files.
The issue of which organisations have acquired medical records has been at the centre of political debate in the past few weeks, following reports that actuaries, pharmaceutical firms, government departments and private health providers had either attempted or obtained patient data.

INCREDIBLE PRESS CONFERENCE FROM TODAY!!!
With brief statements from Gabriela, Dr Naomi Rose, Carol Ray and John Hargrove
Dr. Naomi Rose is such a boss. I’m like 2 minutes in and already she’s given so much information and delivered it so eloquently and competently, with all the credentials to back it up and then some.
Meanwhile that SeaWorld douche Brad Andrews is over here telling us ‘durr orcas are no smarter than my dog.’ I honestly can’t believe there are people who want to be on SeaWorld’s team and support that level of foolishness.
