Matt Hancock, the UK Government's Health Secretary, has referred to
OSM in a video promoting NHSX. He said that:

   For suppliers, it should be as easy to build for the NHS
   as it is to build on OpenStreetMap or on TfL's APIs

The video can be seen on Twitter:

NHSX (according to Wikipedia) is "a UK Government unit with
responsibility for setting national policy and developing best
practice for NHS technology, digital and data - including data-sharing
and transparency". See also:
