Save our NHS data

The UK government has snuck through a massive £23m NHS ‘data deal’ with controversial spy tech firm Palantir.

It gives this CIA-backed firm – whose spyware has been accused of creating ‘racist’ feedback loops in US policing – a major, long-term role in handling our personal health information, and in England's cherished NHS.

We believe that we, the public, should have a say about these lucrative deals before they happen, not after.

That’s why we’re bringing an urgent legal challenge: demanding public consultation on this massive deal. To do this we need your help.

We must act now to stop government secrecy around these massive deals – and to make sure our personal health information and privacy rights are protected. ‘COVID cronyism’ and secrecy must end.
