The Goldacre review, published in April, 2022, 1 is a landmark evaluation of the use, availability, and safety of National Health Service (NHS) data across all four nations of the UK. The review underscores the necessary role of data in driving health-care improvement and innovation, and the potential risks inherent in using data routinely contributed by health service users. The review recommends a radical overhaul in NHS data curation, access, and analysis, and, crucially, argues that substantial new resources must be marshalled to make this aspiration a reality.
