About

This site, and the tool SimonSaysWalk, are medConfidential’s entry for NHS England’s ‘Obesity Data Challenge‘:

“This challenge – the first of its kind – gives innovators the chance to publish or present data on obesity in a new, exciting and useful way. It hopes to help create innovative tools by combining existing data sources, or to help publish data collected but not readily available.” – NHS England, on Rewired State’s Obesity Data Challenge website

medConfidential campaigns for confidentiality and consent in health and social care, seeking to ensure that every flow of data into, across and out of the NHS and care system is consensual, safe and transparent. Founded in January 2013, medConfidential is an independent, non-partisan organisation working with patients and medics, service users and care professionals.
