Lack of trust in online medical records. Opinion

I NOTICE the Government is again trying to force online medical records on us, this time by switching to an opt-out model.

Closer inspection reveals that even if you opt out, this can be over-ruled by the inclusion of your medical information in the records of family members.

So either way, your data will be online, available to hackers and there is little you can do to prevent it. When will the Government realise that many patients just do not trust this?
