Do I need consent to share someone’s data with VRS?

No, processing special category data is not limited to explicit consent.
Data can be processed under ‘substantial public interest’ under the Data Protection Act 2018. This section allows health data to be processed to preserve someone’s economic well-being. If obtaining consent is not possible, unreasonable or if by trying to obtain consent you would prejudice the assistance you are trying to provide, you can share data with us.
