Yup. The 'evolution' is fascinating, but I fear anyone who thinks @NHSX has the IN-HOUSE technical capacity to develop an app like this sorely misunderstands what #DHSX actually is, e.g. it had to hire @faculty_ai to design, staff & set the strategic direction for its "#AILab"...
...as the first 6 bullet points on p7 of this contract show: cdn-prod.opendemocracy.net/media/document…

According to recent reports, the cost of the #nhsxCovid19app's third party development also grew quite a bit:
though, as @EerkeBoiten says, one must be careful not to...
...conflate either (a) what each project is, (b) which companies are working on each, albeit some on several, and (c) who is the notional* data controller.

*"Notional", as controllership's down to who determines purpose & MEANS of processing - not mere contractual assignation

This headline 👇 will be no surprise to anyone who's been following @NHSEngland's plans (and actions) for a while.

But @JonUngoedThomas's article reveals some crucial details about what's intended for your #NHS #HealthRecords that are worth unpacking...

First, and possibly most significantly, is @NHSEngland officials' confirmation that its '#FederatedDataPlatform' will incorporate patients across England's #SharedCareRecords: Health officials confirmed ...
Why is this so important? Because #SharedCareRecords - which every new #ICS* is supposed to have - include your #GPdata, which @NHSEngland has been trying to get hold of for years (most recently last summer)...

So let’s talk about where things got up to with your #HealthData, before Rishi Sunak started talking about the need to generate trust in Government with “#integrity” and “#accountability”…

gov.uk/government/spe… I will unite our country, not with words, but with action.
Earlier today we got a bunch of detail out of @NHSDigital’s Board papers and services performance pack - what of that will continue post-#merger?

N.B. The chair of NHS Digital announced today’s meeting would be the last public meeting of the Board...
With the news that the Government is rushing through @NHSEngland’s takeover of the statutory safe haven (@NHSDigital) with about the level of planning that went into the 'fiscal event', where exactly *are* things as the former/new Sec State starts work?

While the chaos of '#AcceleratedCitizensAccess' to #GPrecords continues to unfold:

...we've come across some perturbing items on the agenda for @NHSDigital's Board meeting this afternoon 👇 which I'll pick up on in this [Thread].

First, beginning on page 158, are some Directions that @NHSEngland must know will be HIGHLY controversial - given they are telling @NHSDigital to use @PalantirTech's #Foundry to collect *patient level identifiable data* from hospitals... 1 Executive Summary  NHS England are directing NHS Digital t
I'll tweet as I do a read-through, but even these first two paragraphs are incoherent, e.g. "...in a way that will enable." Enable what?

And if @NHSEngland Directs NHSD to use #Palantir, NHSE is *determining the purposes and means of processing* - i.e. it is a #DataController... Whether you are a controller or processor depends on a numbe

Hmm. Why would @ukhomeoffice choose to announce this today:


...making explicit reference to "the findings from the Independent Review of #Prevent, led by William Shawcross", WITHOUT PUBLISHING THE REVIEW?
It's not like publication of the #PreventReview wasn't long overdue *nearly a year ago*...


From December 2021: Review of Prevent counter-e...

HT @LisaMWatki for prompting this [Thread] 👇 on the #OurFutureHealth letter/leaflet some of you may be receiving, which appears to omit a few important details...
Those of you with long memories may remember @MattHancock's "5 Million Genomes" announcement back in 2018:


So now you know who (one of) the "other partners" is... This will help support Matt Hancock’s wider ambition to se
