Your data, our challenge

Due to the current UK situation with the Covid-19 virus, we have decided to postpone all our events around data and healthcare. This is a postponement only and we hope to be re-arranging all our events. We will update this page as soon as we have more information.

We look forward to being able to welcome you at a later date.

The NHS produces vast amounts of information like blood test results, prescriptions and treatment information. This information, together with UCLH’s new electronic healthcare record, is an incredible resource for researchers looking at diseases and how to treat them. But using patient data for health research raises a lot of issues, such as patient consent, security, the use of machine learning and data sharing.

Come to one of our interactive events to learn more and tell us what you think.

Upcoming events in 2020

Provisional details of events are below. This page will be updated as dates, locations and sign up details are confirmed.
