Patient data: how it’s used, stored and shared. Have your say

Over the summer the Government is seeking views from the public on plans for how the NHS will be able to use patient data to improve services and treatments.

In particular, they are looking at how the NHS should protect your data and how you can chose what your data is used for.

Healthwatch England has put together a short survey (just 9 questions) to reflect the areas most relevant to the public.

The consultation closes on 7 September and Healthwatch England will use your responses to help us formulate its formal submission to the Government’s consultation.


You can take the survey online:
