Isn't there a law against that?

"NHS Digital, the non-departmental public body, which designs, develops and operates national IT and data services, has said it would "not approve requests for data where the purpose is for marketing... including promoting or selling products or services, market research or advertising.""

"However, data available on the NHS Digital website already shows firms are using hospital patient data for this purpose."
