As some of you may be aware the national Data Guardian has published a report on new data security standards and opt-out models for health and social care. This report has gone out to consultation and the National User Group has submitted a respons (available to download).
We have serious reservations about the new consent and opt-out model, in particular the apparent loss of patients' right to the "Type 1 objection" to prevent their data being uploaded to the central database at NHS Digital.
The full report is available here.
The consultation can be completed here
Our response is available to download from this page.
