Tories offer patients 'control'


The Conservatives are to reveal plans for how medical records should be handled - including proposals to make deals with online companies such as Google and Microsoft so that people can access and edit their own details. They are also expected to abandon plans to put all records on a central database, a project that is likely to cost £12bn and is already running years late. Conservative health spokesman Stephen O'Brien discusses the proposals.
