In this paper we describe the development and test of a futuristic health scenario that allows the seamless exchange of sensitive personal data. The scenario was used to elicit user attitudes and concerns in thirty-eight focus groups drawn from a representative population sample. Emergent themes are described in terms of firstly, those hygiene factors that act as precursors to successful engagement with the technology, secondly, those motivators that would drive acceptance and thirdly, longer-term societal impact.
