NHS Data Privacy Concerns as Palantir Takes Control

Public Trust in NHS Data Privacy at Risk

Public trust in the NHS's new data platform could be compromised, as patients lack the option to withhold their medical records from being shared. The exchange of data, although anonymised, is mandatory between NHS entities.

The £480m contract awarded to US-based Palantir, known for its intelligence-focused technology, intensifies concerns over privacy, leading to a backlash considering the company's controversial background.
