Horizon 2020

medConfidential is a UK-based organisation that campaigns for consent and confidentiality in health and social care. Our goal is to ensure that every flow of data into, across and out of the NHS and social care system is consensual, safe and transparent.

While our focus is mainly on UK issues, medConfidential is part of an informal network of civil society organisations and groups across Europe and around the world with a strong interest or dedicated focus on health informatics, genomics, patient privacy, consent, confidentiality and data protection issues.
