The medConfidential campaign has issued a press release following the publication of the Independent Information Governance Oversight Panel (IIGOP) on the care.data scheme. The report lists 27 areas of concern for the care.data Programme Board to address, which contain some 52 unanswered questions.  In addition, there are seven additional tests that the recently announced care.data pathfinder Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) must meet. MedConfidential highlights that the sheer number of unanswered questions indicates just how fundamentally misconceived care.data was from its inception, and at this stage – 10 months after the programme was stopped – suggests continued mishandling by those running the care.data scheme. The IIGOP report can be found here.
