Phil Booth

PHIL BOOTH is an identity and privacy advocate who led the non-partisan NO2ID campaign from 2004-2011, campaigning successfully to defeat the introduction of ID cards and other 'database state' initiatives.  His work has been recognised by awards from Privacy International (2008) and Liberty (2010). Since 2013, Phil has coordinated medConfidential, which campaigns for confidentiality and consent in health and social care, seeking to ensure that every flow of data across and around the UK’s NHS and wider care system is consensual, safe, and transparent. In his other work as a technologist and social entrepreneur, Phil advises a number of organisations and initiatives that seek to provide individuals with greater control over their own personal data.
