My Lords, first, I need to declare an interest as a member of a clinical commissioning group, which also happens to cover the Royal Free.

I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Freyberg, on the timeliness of this debate. I just wonder whether the Secretary of State chose this date to make his announcement about investment in NHS data and technology, as it allows the Minister here to tell us about the NHS’s plans. There is a nice congruency about that.
