The Council for Science and Technology (CST) believes that the ability to fulfil the government's ambitions to deliver more effective and personalised public services, as set out in the White Paper on 'Transformational government: enabled by technology', is dependent on the intelligent use of personal information about individual people. Government should provide the focus and drive to improve the linkages between, and access to, personal data, while at the same time recognising that there are significant risks which need to be minimised. This should be an incremental process, with the move towards greater data-sharing accompanied by parallel changes in policies and processes that minimise risks and ensure the potential benefits are realised in practice.
