The Health Foundation responded to the National Data Guardian's (NDG) consultation on its new work priorities.
We outlined the principles of safeguarding patient data are well-established and that the DG will continue to play an important role to ensure these principles are applied. As potential innovative uses of data continue to emerge, we believe that the NDG can play an equally important role by providing a framework to ensure that patients’ data can be shared where there is a potential benefit in doing so, while respecting the wishes of patients. We highlight the Seventh Caldicott Principle that can sometimes be overlooked. The NDG can emphasise this principle to ensure patients benefit from the adoption of new technologies and innovations using their data.
