Hosted by ORG London – meetup page

WHEN: Monday, March 17, 2014 from 7:30pm

WHERE: The Open Data Institute, 3rd Flood, 65 Clifton St, London

SPEAKER: Phil Booth, coordinator of medConfidential¬≠ and former National Coordinator of NO2ID will be giving month’s talk on care.data.

Significant changes to how your medical data is handled are happening now. Medical data that was previously under the control of your GP is going to be uploaded to a central database at the Health and Social Care Information Centre, from where it will be shared with companies and organisations inside and outside the NHS for a range of purposes, none of which are to with your direct medical care.

Phil will be explaining more about what’s happening and how you can opt out of the changes. Talk starts at 7.30pm
