Financial Times: England’s NHS plans to share patient records with third parties

Financial Times: England’s NHS plans to share patient records with third parties. I do not usually share Financial Times articles because of the paywall, but this article was not paywalled to me. “England’s NHS is preparing to scrape the medical histories of 55m patients, including sensitive information on mental and sexual health, criminal records and abuse, into a database it will share with third parties. The data collection project, which is the first of its kind, has caused an uproar among privacy campaigners, who say it is ‘legally problematic’, especially as patients only have a few weeks to opt out of the plan.”
