Public attitudes to organisations innovating with NHS data | National Data Guardian
The National Data Guardian (NDG) has released findings from a poll on public attitudes to NHS organisations working with partners to use data to develop new medicines and technologies to improve health.
The poll tested what the public thought would be fair when partnerships with universities or private companies result in valuable new discoveries that could be traded commercially. It found strong support for the idea that NHS and patients should benefit from such partnerships although significant proportions of respondents said they neither agreed nor disagreed with whether the range of benefits was fair.
The NDG is now calling for a debate about the relationships between the NHS and those innovating with NHS data.
