2020 was a big year for health data in the UK. In the year of Brexit and COVID-19, information governance was key. So what does 2021 have in store?

  2. Anonymisation and the (messy) intersection of data privacy and the common law duty of confidentiality
  3. The National Data Opt-Out deadline of 31 March 2021
  4. Brexit
  5. The upcoming new Records Management Code of Practice
