UK government refuses public review before launch of NHS data platform - Privacy Community
UK government refuses public review of NHS analytics plaform
Patients must have the right to decide what information is taken from health records, say privacy campaigners

The UK government is refusing to run a public consultation on the expanded use of centralized data analytics on personal health information – under a £360 million ($432 million) contract that spy-tech business Palantir is tipped to win.

Minister of State for Care and Mental Health Gillian Keegan told Parliament that NHS England, a non-departmental body which runs the NHS, is not proposing to conduct an open debate on the nature or remit of the forthcoming Federated Data Platform.

For England’s NHS, the Federated Data Platform is a top-down approach to the procurement of a £360 million system said to favor incumbent supplier Palantir, which saw its initial COVID-19 Data Store role expanded to help with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine under a £23 million ($27 million) contract let without competition.
