Our response to the National Data Guardian Consultation

Read our submission to the government consultation on proposed data security standards and data sharing in the NHS and social care.

The Government is consulting on new standards to strengthen the security of health and care information and to help you make informed choices about how your data is used.

Over the course of summer the Healthwatch network has been helping to raise public awareness of the National Data Guardian’s report and the opportunity for people to share what they think via the consultation.

Our submission to the consultation includes the views of 147 people who shared what they thought on some of the broad principles behind the proposals.  

We would like to thank everyone who shared their views with us.
