I'm not a fan of selling data.. but

The situation right now is that the NHS is being asked on many occasions to release data for research purposes yet receives nothing from the outcomes of that research. If it is used to develop a commercial tool there's no % funds fed back to the NHS - the private company and university benefit, yet the data they relied on came from the NHS.

Researchers are demanding more and more access to NHS data, in many cases asking for data which isn't properly anonymised, or entirely untouched data for research purposes.
