Migrants' Rights Network

We need your support to defend migrants’ rights to patient confidentiality in the NHS!

The Migrants’ Rights Network (MRN) have launched a legal challenge to a secret data-sharing agreement between the Home Office, Department of Health and NHS that violates patient confidentiality and puts all migrants at risk.

The agreement gives the Home Office access to confidential patient information to aid immigration enforcement. It was written in secret, without consulting NHS staff, medical organisations or the public, and published in January this year.

MRN is calling on the public to back its challenge via crowdfunding site CrowdJustice (https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/stopnhsdatasharing), to help the campaigning organisation cover its costs and continue its work protecting the rights of all migrants in the UK.
