Hosted by Cambridge Clinical Informatics

Have your say on the use of your patient medical records.

In previous events, community members and patients have indicated that they support the use of patient medical records by academic and medical researchers for the purpose of understanding health and healthcare if patients can opt out. However, healthcare researchers may need to inform, or work with scientific industries to develop new health products, medications and treatment methods, and to support new health research. Additionally, the government has the ability to mandate that NHS trusts give them patient medical records.

How should healthcare researchers and NHS trusts interact with the government and scientific communities on using and sharing patient medical records? Are you interested in helping to decide how patient medical records are shared between healthcare providers, government, researchers and scientific companies? We want to hear your views on sharing and selling medical records for commercial purposes. Are there acceptable reasons and/or ways in which healthcare providers could share patient medical records with the government, researchers, and scientific/pharmaceutical companies?

The Centre for Cambridge Clinical Informatics (http://www.clinicalinformatics.group.cam.ac.uk/) is hosting a free public workshop on these topics. This will be a lively two and a half hour interactive workshop where everyone is encouraged to share their opinions or raise points of concern. All people who are eligible to receive healthcare in the UK are welcomed. Patients, and their family members and carers, are particularly encouraged to attend. The information we generate will be shared with policy makers and those involved in healthcare research to help support a community-formed policy on health data management. Light refreshments and compensation for reasonable travel costs will be provided.
