National Voices are partnering with Understanding Patient Data to host a summit looking at some of the big issues surrounding health and patient data in the UK.

With NHS England currently working on implementing the national data opt-out programme, many people will be thinking about their health data for the first time.

This half-day event is aimed at charities and voluntary sector organisations who might soon be getting questions from their supporters about the opt-out and other patient data related issues.

Understanding Patient Data (an affiliation of the Wellcome Trust) support better conversations about the uses of health information. Their aim is to explain how and why data can be used for care and research, what’s allowed and what’s not, and how personal information is kept safe.

National Voices will also be using this event to consider how best we can shape the national work happening on patient data to ensure that person-centred care principles are kept as the NHS uses and shares our health data more and more.

Kuldeep Sohal (Programme Manager, Connected Yorkshire) will take part in a panel discussion on ‘How can data be used to improve health for everyone?’  To take a look at the agenda in full, click here.
