Roy was an active opponent of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and during the campaign produced a draft NHS Emergency Powers Act giving an alternative approach to NHS reform. In 2013, he chaired the People’s Inquiry into London’s NHS. In March 2014, he was reported as saying, in connection with the care.data controversy, that better use of data was vital to improve the quality of care but that politicians had made it more difficult for the public to believe their commitments about the future use of the records, because previous ministers’ pledges - such as a promise to have no top-down reorganisation of the NHS - had been broken.
Roy currently lives in Camberley, Surrey.
