Last week to keep NHS Data Private

    Just a reminder that from 23rd June, possibly 20th, the NHS will be sharing your data with other bodies and companies for research unless you opt out.

    The Opt out form is here:
    Make your choice about sharing data from your health records

    They can still share it for censuses, if its in the public interest (which presumably means sufficient cash was paid), etc. Details here: National Data Opt-out "Choose if data from your health records is shared for research and planning" Service Privacy Notice

    Your name and address is not considered confidential, so yeah, users of the NHS can get stalked through NHS Digital. Just like they did through track and trace. Just great.

    I didn't think it was that bad.

    It should be all anonymised, so even if you have submitted data, it is all jumbled together and they only pass out aggregated data. There shouldn't be any way to link it back.

    Glad to be of service. Really not happy about this. It wasn't exactly advertised.
