PHE Caldicott Advisory Panel regularly reviews surveillance programmes where data is collected without direct patient consent under Regulation 3 of the Health Service (Control of Patient Information) Regulations 2002. In the most recent review of the Surveillance of Bloodstream Infections the panel make it clear that the legal cover is for all users and organisation contributing to the surveillance not just PHE, previously this was slightly ambiguous. A copy of the Caldicott Advisory Panel decision letter can be downloaded here.
This letter was reviewed in 2020 and is available here
