Wide-ranging UK DATA SHARING moves one step closer



I notice in yesterdays Times that the health data sharing proposals that were put on one side earlier this year are back on the table. Following the strong reaction against the idea, they are now proposing trials on how to better "explain" the proposals to the public in order to avoid a new flood of objections.

There are, of course, no proposals to address the actual weaknesses of the system, such as the quite inadequate anonomisation.

I can see I will be passing round the opt-out forms again!
