Department of Health and Social Care | July 2019 | Creating the right framework to realise the benefits of health data
This document provides an update on the development of government policy to:
- establish guiding principles and a framework to help the NHS realise benefits for patients and the public where the NHS shares data with researchers
- establish a National Centre of Expertise to provide specialist advice and guidance to the NHS on agreements for use of data
The aim of the principles is to ensure that the NHS, patients and the public gain fair benefit from agreements involving the sharing of health and care data.
These agreements are intended to inspire public trust, through maintaining the highest standards of transparency and ethical data handling.
