Consultation on processing of health data

The government is consulting on the role on the national data guardian for health and social care.

Since last December the guardian has been empowered to issue statutory guidance to public bodies and to charities and private providers of health and care services. The consultation will help determine priorities for guidance about the use of health and social care data. It closes on 22 March 2019.
