Disability Rights UK welcomes NHS England’s decision to delay plans to share data from people's medical records.

The decision to postpone the sharing of data for at least six months follows concerns expressed by doctors, patients' groups and online campaign group 38 Degrees, who conducted a poll of 150,000 people and found that more than 90% said they would opt out of record sharing.
