Our submission to the National Data Guardian review

Posted on 30/11/15

The National Data Guardian for health and social care will help to ensure that personal confidential data is held and used to support better outcomes from health and care services, at the same time providing confidence that there are thorough safeguards in place to protect personal confidential data.

In response to the Department of Health's consultation on the National Data Guardian we have submitted written evidence on public attitudes on consent and data security based on what the Healthwatch network have heard from people. We hope this will be used by the National Data Guardian’s review team to develop the future consent and opt-out policy.
