This Green Paper has been drafted following consultations and workshops with numerous organisations including health data research organisations and universities, data custodians and patient groups, as well as analysis of current data use registers. 

 Through the recommendations in the Green Paper, we aim to:  

  • Improve transparency in the use of health data for research and innovation 
  • demonstrate the value and benefit of using health data 
  • develop a culture of openness amongst data custodians and researchers 
  • generate better insight into health data usage
  • build public trust and advocacy for data use 

 The Alliance is now seeking further feedback and engagement from organisations, the public, researchers and key policy makers regarding opportunities or challenges raised by the  recommendations and specification.  

 Please provide input via the Data Use Registers feedback survey by 20 August 2021 . This feedback will then be incorporated into a White Paper following sign off by the Alliance Board in October 2021,
