Health Informatics Community to restrict access

The latest bulletin from the Health Informatics Community says that:
"we plan to review our policy on access to the HIC and you will only be automatically granted access to the closed areas of the site if you have a nhs.net, nhs.uk or .gov.uk domain name."

I am worried that this will limited the opportunities provided by this site for the exchange of news, views and ideas, and will mean that those from academia and others with a legitimate interest in the development of health informatics in the UK, including members of the Faculty of Health Informatics will be excluded from discussions.

I have sent an email requesting further explanation or discussion of this decision but not, as yet, received any reply.
