Description: Care.data is a programme of work which aims to increase the range and detail of information that is collected across Health and Social Care services, then to securely connect that information together and make it available to those who plan NHS services, as well as to researchers, clinicians, medical charities and businesses that support the NHS to make services better.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The Delivery Confidence is based on latest Major Projects Authority Project Assurance Review which assessed the delivery confidence as Amber/Red. The pathfinder stage of care.data was delayed by the National Data Guardian's review for consent/opt out, as announced by Secretary of State for Health on 2 September 2015. Good progress continues to be made across all other aspects of the Programme, however, it remains under intense scrutiny, operating without an approved business case and managing significant risks. The Outline Business Case for Phase 1 of care.data is in development and the plan is to obtain all required approvals by April 2016. Work has continued to develop the strategy for the national rollout of linked datasets and stakeholders have been engaged. Materials, including patient facing communication materials and a practice toolkit are ready for use in pathfinder areas; subject to amendments that may be required following the outcome of the National Data Guardian's review.
Start date: 2012-09-01
End date: 2020-03-31
Schedule text: Movement of scheduled dates for pathfinder and Phase 1 national rollout activities has occurred following the Secretary of State for Health announcement on 2 September 2015, as communications cannot begin with the public until the National Data Guardian’s review of the model of consent/opt out is complete. The Programme Business Case entered the assurance and approval process in February 2015, after being endorsed by the Programme Board. The case was reviewed by Department of Health Economists which led to a change of approach. A revised Programme Business Case is being developed.
