The summary of the responses we received to the consultation Liberating the NHS: An Information Revolution has been published.
Ensuring that the information revolution benefits everyone and does not increase health inequalities was one of the strongest themes raised in the responses to the consultation. Ongoing equality analysis is informing the development of the Information Strategy. An initial list of equality opportunities and issues is available and we will publish a further equality analysis alongside the Information Strategy.
The consultation period ran from 18 October 2010 to 14 January 2011.We received 742 responses and will use these, along with input from the NHS Future Forum, to develop our Information Strategy (which will also form the Government’s response to this consultation).
