+1 – Would be great to see this published. It's something we need to advise services who use Verify about all the time and we're currently linking lots to draft guidance.

Oh and of course it's a lot more important because of GDPR!

We should have a look at the "personal data exchange" team at GDS (do they still exist? they were working on this according to Kay) @timpaul @sanjaypoyzer @joelanman

@ignaciaorellana Product Manager is Eloise Taysom, but I don't think they've done much in the way of design patterns AFAIK.

+1 I've been looking for this pattern. The guidance is looking good too. Any idea when it might be published?

We'll need to consider 2 related use cases:

  • helping users choose to share their data (eg. with their solicitor)
  • helping users consent to their data being shared (eg. between departments)

@J-Lambo new design patterns have to be approved through the cross-government Working Group before they're published, it's a new process we're just starting to try while we're in Private Beta. You can learn more about the process here:

In the meantime, it would be great to get feedback you might have on the proposed pattern in these comments

Just noticed I never actually put it in here that we did some work on this for Verify Local. Not sure if it's the same exact pattern as the first comment references Share driving licence which is more about sharing data across channels rather then mid-transaction, but there is a thing here about user's giving informed consent about data sharing –

Ask the user for their consent is now published in the HMRC design system
