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

"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."

They should be told:

1. You can't have non-anonymized data.

2. If you leak it somehow, and there is any indication that anonymization can be reversed, you will be heavily fined (organizations and individuals, both) and you will go to prison for a goodly period of time.

3. If the anonymization is actually reversed, fines and prison terms will double.
