National Data Guardian for Health and Care 2017 report: Impact and influence for patients and service users

Foreword by Dame Fiona Caldicott:

Since my appointment as the National Data Guardian (NDG) for Health and Care in November 20141, I have made the focus of my role the need for more to be done to help people be aware and more actively engaged in important decisions about how patient data1 is used and protected.

These are issues that matter to us all. The confidential information we share with doctors, nurses and social workers is vital for our Individual care. If treated carefully, legally and with public support, it can also help us to improve health, care and services through research and planning.

It is true that the discussions about data can be complex. To many people the technical considerations and legal frameworks may seem remote and the discussions can appear to take place in committee rooms amidst policy considerations which all of us find overly complex. But every policy question, each new initiative on which I have advised, has reinforced a fundamental requirement: the public must be included in understanding and supporting innovation which relies on data generated by their use of health and care services.
