Corsham Institute Public Health Data Survey

A survey of British adults on their views around the storage of patient data.

  • Seven in ten (70%) British adults say they are confident that their NHS patient data is stored securely, while a quarter (25%) are not.
  • Of the places tested, British adults are most likely to say they would be comfortable with their patient data being stored on their local NHS branch’s computer server (73%), and least likely to say this for clouds managed by global companies under non-UK jurisdiction (19%).
  • Only in ten (28%) British adults report being aware of patient data being stored on a cloud – and nine in ten (92%) say that having strict limits on who could access their records would be important to them if their patient data was stored in such a way.
