The ultimate data ownership failure?

It seems that medical organisations on both sides of the Atlantic have been having major digital and data issues for some time, but given the constant questions over who owns our data (on social networks, mobile apps, internet usage etc), this sadly summed up the current situation for me.

To summarise, a government body handed over parts of my medical records to people I’ve never met, outside the NHS and medical research community, but it is refusing to tell me what it handed over, or who it gave it to, and the minister is now incorrectly claiming that it never happened anyway.
