    Grim experience has taught the British public to be wary of trusting the Government with its sensitive personal information.

    Patients own their health data; the Government must now use this time to make clear why they are collecting this data and what they will use it for.

    If you do not want your GP to share your identifiable patient data for purposes except for your own care, you can opt-out by registering a Type 1 Opt-out. This prevents your data being shared with NHS Digital.

    Ed Davey said

    "This is heart-breaking for me and for our whole Liberal Democrat family.

    Shirley has been an inspiration to millions, a Liberal lion and a true trailblazer. I feel privileged to have known her, listened to her and worked with her. Like so many others, I will miss her terribly.

    Political life will be poorer without her intellect, her wisdom and her generosity. Shirley had a limitless empathy only too rare in politics today; she connected with people, cared about their lives and saw politics as a crucial tool to change lives for the better.
