Oh you know those leaked Trump trade talks that Jeremy Corbyn released last week and most journos said “no big deal”?

Well they reveal the US is demanding access to your NHS health records, worth £10 billion a year to US tech companies. No biggie.

“A leading trade economist has warned that NHS patient data may be exploited by US technology companies under a trade deal with America.

Alan Winters... said clauses... US negotiators want inserted into a deal could be used to capture the value in NHS patient records.”
“The arrangements could see UK data swept back to servers in America and mined by algorithms written in Silicon Valley to develop new diagnostic tools and medical devices that would then be sold back to the NHS.”
Mr Winters said: “These digital chapters in US trade deals are written in Silicon Valley. You could end up where the UK is unable to analyse its health data without paying a royalty to Silicon Valley to use an algorithm.”
There Times points out: “The leaked papers were the same as those that revealed that UK negotiators were worried that the NHS might have to pay more for drugs under US plans for a trade deal.”
