This jargon-free introductory film explains how our data is used in healthcare.

Data is a vital resource.  Through technology, it’s being increasingly shared and used (securely) by the healthcare professionals that support us, to improve wider NHS/care services and to do research.

While the data responsibilities of healthcare organisations are really important, equal attention should be given to the people’s perspective. We, as individuals, should be made aware of and understand how our data is used. Being more informed can help us to have a constructive dialogue and assist our decision-making (for any consent options) on how our data is used.

So have a look at our film and let’s start to talk about #ourHealthcareData.
