This consultation sets out proposals for new regulations to place strong controls around the disclosure of data which might potentially identify individuals by the Health and Social Care Information Centre and accredited safe havens.
This consultation also includes proposals for new regulations to address concerns about restrictions on the sharing of confidential personal information with NHS and social care case managers who need to have access to this information in relation to those for whom they are responsible for arranging health or care services. Proposals for establishing accredited safe havens which place strong controls on the sharing and use of data for activities such as commissioning are also outlined.
The consultation runs for 6 weeks and closes on the 8th August 2014.
