Care.data: A missed opportunity

Care.data: A missed opportunity
Description
In all the many important discussions about data security in the context of the Care.data project, other concerns, such as the marketisation of the research agenda and the resulting influence over which public health issues are highlighted, are often ignored. Outside the NHS, care.data will also be made available to think tanks, universities, charities, and private companies, as if they were all equivalent entities with equivalent motivations.

Integrated Care: an impossible dream?

Integrated Care: an impossible dream?
Description
For those of us who have worked, researched and led integrated care it is undoubtedly rewarding to see its importance being so recognised, promoted and supported. Whilst integration (or in other guises such as partnership, joint working or collaboration) is not a new policy intent as such, there was a time in which it appeared to be falling out of favour in the current reforms.
