The NHS is changing and services are being restructured. These reforms will impact upon the way that clinical data are collected, shared and analysed. Under the powers of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA), the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) can, under certain circumstances from GP practices without seeking patient consent. One of the first initiatives using these new powers is the care.data service England and will be delivered by the HSCIC. The HSCIC is England’s central authoritative source of health and social care information (see FAQ 1 for further information). Care.data will make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving healthcare, for example by ensuring that timely and accurate data are made available to NHS commissioners and providers so that they can better design integrated services for patients. In the future, approved researchers may also benefit. The HSCIC will link PCD extracted from GP systems with PCD from other health and social care settings. The BMA supports the use of patient data for secondary purposes, including commissioning, and recognises the importance of greater transparency and more intelligent use of data to improve the quality of care delivered to patients. Achieving these aims must not undermine existing high standards of confidentiality.

 

NHS England has made a commitment that personal

confidential data will not be shared unless there is a

legal basis or an overriding public interest in disclosure.
