The coalition government set out in its 2010 vision, Liberating the NHS (Department of Health [DH], 2010), that all organisations in the NHS should become more transparent and improve accountability to assist people make better choices on what care they receive and from whom they receive it.

One of its strategies was an initial consultation (DH, 2011a) held in late 2010 and its response (DH, 2011b) in 2011, as part of its ambition to understand the ‘information revolution’ required to transform the NHS to deliver more efficiently, with data being the enabler to demonstrate that effectively.
