Understanding Patient Data has been set up to support better conversations about uses of health information. We think that responsible use of patient data has the potential to improve everyone’s health and deliver better care. It is important that everyone can find out how patient data is used and why, and understand more about the safeguards that are in place to protect patient confidentiality.
Our aim is to develop tools and resources to help inform discussions and support responsible uses of data. You can find out about our work, governance, funding and supporters on this page, or contact us for more information. Understanding Patient Data is led by a small core team, based at the Wellcome offices in London, UK and has been set up to run for two years.
