Planned data sharing
Further our post 1.6.2021, we were delighted to hear an announcement today that the planned data sharing proposed for July 1st has now been delayed until September at least. We feel that this gives time now for a proper in depth public information campaign and will hopefully allow patients to make a fully informed decision on whether or not you are happy to have your pseudo-anonymised data extracted for research purposes.
We would ask you to decide if you are happy to have your data shared or not and if you would like to opt out please do complete the forms in the blog from 1.6.21 so that we can register your wishes. Please find below a statement from the BMA today
BMA says Ministers listened to Association’s call to delay roll-out of the patient data sharing programme and it was the right thing to do – BMA media centre – BMA
