12 July 2017: NHS Digital1 Interim CEO Rob Shaw said: "Our objective, alongside our partners in the NHS family, is to build and maintain public trust in data security and data sharing. Patients need to feel confident that their data is held safely and securely and information only shared for the benefit of health and care.
"We know that sharing data improves lives, but patients also have the right to make informed choices about whether they want to share their data.
"NHS Digital is committed to the principles set out in the NDG Review. We will work with public, patients, health professionals and partners to build understanding and trust that the data we hold is kept secure and shared safely. We look forward to delivering on the actions the Government Response describes."
