The UK Government is Providing Amazon Full Access to NHS Data at No Cost

The Infinite Brief
NHS data on the health of the population is being handed over to Amazon at no charge.

A copy of the December 2018 contract between Amazon and the DHSC reveals the company will be able to profit from its access to a range of NHS information.

The company will be able to access all “healthcare information, including without limitation, symptoms, causes, and definitions, and all related copyrightable content, data, information and other materials.”

Health secretary Matt Hancock hailed the deal with Amazon in July as a way to help give patients better medical advice using technology such as Alexa.
