    medConfidential; TRUTH2POWER; Einstein's Attic

    Phil currently coordinates medConfidential, which campaigns for confidentiality and consent in health and social care. A vocal critic of government plans to extract and sell information from our medical records, medConfidential seeks to ensure every flow of data into, across and out of the NHS and care system is consensual, safe and transparent. Phil led NO2ID, the UK-wide campaign against the database state, from 2004 to 2011, stepping down after the dismantling of the Home Office ID scheme, including the repeal of the Identity Cards Act 2006. He also runs TRUTH2POWER which provides practical and strategic advice and skills training to campaigners and campaigning organisations. Phil’s work as an advocate has been recognised by awards from Privacy International (2008) and Liberty (2010).
