Labour responds to NHS patient data collection delay
Alex Norris MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Public Health and Primary Care said:
“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.”
