Alex Norris – 2021 Comments on NHS Patient Data Collection Delay

The comments made by Alex Norris, the Shadow Minister for Public Health and Primary Care, on 8 June 2021.

This is a welcome decision, but it was only achieved after overwhelming pressure from patients, and health professionals alike.

This must now mean that all elements, including the opt-out, are delayed and there must be a full public consultation about this issue before the data collection is resumed. Labour will continue to raise this with Ministers to ensure this is the case.
