From 2017 to 2023, the UPD team at Wellcome published many fantastic news articles keeping us informed about all things patient data. As we transition to the new team at NHS Confederation, we decided to archive some of this content to make space for upcoming news.

Some of the content on topics such as data access and GPDPR have been kept with some updates to ensure they are up to date. Other articles seemed more at home in another format - for example articles on our research into public benefit have become a standalone resource, while multiple articles on Covid-19 and the Black and South Asian community project have been collated together for easy access.

All of these articles have been archived in their original format - if you see a title of interest to you, let us know at and we'd be happy to share the article with you.
