Health and Social Care Committee
The Health Committee held an evidence session on Tuesday 16 January and considered the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on processing information requests from the Home Office to NHS Digital for tracing immigration offenders.
The Committee’s predecessor considered the MoU early in 2017, and shortly before the general election published several exchanges of correspondence ( PDF 4.99 MB) on the matter between the Chair and the Minister for Public Health, the Chair of NHS Digital, the Chief Executive of Public Health England, the Chief Executive of the General Medical Council and the National Data Guardian.
The Committee will be considering the matters raised in that correspondence, in the light of the publication in November 2017 of the report of NHS Digital’s National Back Office (NBO) tracing service review.
Evidence given by Sarah Wilkinson, Chief Executive Officer, NHS Digital, Noel Gordon, Chair, NHS Digital
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
