Exploring people’s views on how information can be better used for health and wellbeing.

The My World My Health project ran between November 2020 and March 2021. Its aim was to shine a light on the factors that contribute to our wellbeing, but aren’t necessarily ‘medical’ in nature. For example, we might all think of medications, doctors and hospitals as having an obvious impact on our health. We might perhaps even consider diet and exercise. But what about our employment, home life and even the community or society that we live in?

To understand more about the topic, see our opinion piece on this subject or listen to our project podcast (this link will take you away from our website).

Engagement on this project has ended and a report has been submitted to Nesta (this link will take you away from our website). The project was commissioned by Nesta on behalf of the Scottish Government. The Scottish Government will draw on the findings from this and other work in developing their approaches to data sharing and service design.
