Compare and contrast

From Tony Collins we hear that:

An NHS trust at the forefront of work on the £12.7bn NHS IT scheme has called in police after a breach of smartcard security compromised the confidentiality of hundreds of electronic records.

Meanwhile, on another planet:

Millions of patient records are to go online in London after long delays to an NHS IT upgrade in the city.

…The records, which contain details of patient medications and allergies, will go live on Thursday following pilot studies across England.

It is hoped the system will allow data to be shared more easily.

I’m sure it will. The problem is, with whom?
