    Police forces will be able to “strong-arm” NHS bodies into handing over confidential patient data under planned laws that have sparked fury from doctors’ groups and the UK’s medical watchdog. Ministers are planning new powers for police forces that would “set aside” the existing duty of confidentiality that applies to patient data held by the NHS and will instead require NHS organisations to hand over data police say they need to prevent serious violence. Last week, England’s national data guardian, Dr Nicola Byrne, told The Independent she had serious concerns about the impact of th

    Plans to force the NHS to share confidential data with police across England are “very problematic” and could see patients giving false information to GPs, the government’s data watchdog has warned. In her first interview, Dr Nicola Byrne, the national data guardian for England told The Independent she has serious concerns over Home Office plans to impose a responsibility on the NHS to share patient data with police which she said “sets aside” the duty of confidentiality for clinicians. She also warned that emergency powers brought in to allow the sharing of data to help tackle the s

    A national tech chief has called for a ‘radical simplification’ of the way in which NHS patients can opt out of having their data shared. NHSX chief executive Matthew Gould today said the current system was “overly complicated” with “too many different opt out mechanisms” and it needs to be made “super simple” for the public. His comments come as NHSX, NHS Digital and the Department of Health and Social Care are working on the much-delayed and controversial GP data-sharing programme. The scheme was paused indefinitely this summer after backlash from GPs and campaigners. Speaking

    Researchers surveyed 3,065 11- to 17-year-olds in England who tested positive for Covid-19 in a PCR test between January and March. They also surveyed a matched control group of 3,739 11- to 17-year-olds who tested negative over the same period. Initial results show that, 15 weeks after their positive test: 14% more young people in the test positive group had three or more symptoms of ill health than the test negative group 7% more young people in the test positive group had five or more symptoms of ill health than the test negative group.

    Life expectancy in England has fallen to its lowest level since 2011, a Public Health England (PHE) report has said. Deaths were 1.4 times higher than expected between 21 March 2020 and 2 July 2021, according to the report’s findings. The increase, largely driven by the pandemic the report said, resulted in a life expectancy decrease of 1.3 years in males, to 78.7, and a 0.9 year decrease in females, to 82.7 years - the lowest life expectancy since 2011. Life expectancy inequality is also widening between people in the most and least deprived areas. The gap in male life expectancy be

    In a positive step towards the future of pathology, NHS Digital has received approval from the Data Alliance Partnership Board (DAPB) for a new set of pathology information standards, and as part of NHS England CCIO7 workstreams, NHS Digital are delivering the ability to share pathology results across health and care. This move will enable clinicians to share and access critical information about pathology tests and results and receive the right information when they need it, which will help support improved clinical decision making and patient safety.

    Results found that of the 20, 758 prescriptions reviewed, 3375 interventions were made, CPs spent 3.5 h per day on direct patient care, reviewed 10.3 patients per day and required 22.5 min per review. In addition, there was no correlation found between the presence of electronic prescribing in critical care and any intervention rate, concluding that a CP is essential for safe and optimised patient medication therapy and that services should be appropriately staffed to ensure sufficient time for prescription review and maximal therapy optimisation.

    A new tool by NHS Digital has recently been launched that will allow patients to see which organisations can access their data. The Data Uses Register has revealed which organisations can access the data, such as public sector bodies and charities. Each organisation wanting to use the data must have a legitimate and legal reason such as health and care planning and research purposes. Simon Bolton, NHS Digital’s interim CEO, said: “The new Data Uses Register is an important improvement to make our data sharing agreements more transparent and user-friendly. We take our responsibility as th

    Ministers are to legislate more powers over how data on patients is collected and are imposing a 'duty' on the NHS to share patient information when doing so would benefit the system. The Health and Social Care Act 2021 already allows for sharing of data on an individual basis but staff have reported finding it hard to share it when it comes to primary and secondary care and administrative purposes. The new draft strategy produced by NHSX, has suggested it may want to use cloud storage to create a set of “structured data records” with the idea that it would make it easier for patie
