Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "Out of 1464 responses, 1004 respondents (69%) answered in their personal capacity, while 460 respondents answered in their professional capacity or on behalf of an organisation (31%). The majority of respondents answering in their personal capacity are citizens (45% of total respondents) while 14% of total respondents identified themselves as health and care professionals (e.g. doctors, nurses, social care professionals) who nevertheless responded to the survey in their personal capacity."
This question was phrased by the source as follows: "Would you agree with the principle that personal health data should be made available for further research, on a case-by-case basis, in a secure way, and in compliance with data protection legislation?"
