Living in Leeds - how can we use big data to improve services and accelerate research in healthcare for patient benefit? Our ambition in Leeds is to create a comprehensive and linked data set in for health and care. However, there are significant issues of informed consent and public trust that we need to properly address in order to make this a reality. During this event we will hear from big data experts about the benefits of data analytics and proposals for how we might engage citizens in enabling impact in our city. Phil Waywell will introduce us to the capabilities and expertise within Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA). Frank Wood (Chief Analyst for Leeds CCG) will provide an example of how linked data sets have been used in Leeds to compare population health outcomes. Dr Geoff Hall, Senior Lecturer of Medical Oncology at University of Leeds & Clinical Director at Leeds Institute of Data Analytics, and Kieran Zucker, Honorary Clinical Oncology Specialist Registrar at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, will talk through groundbreaking work to improve outcomes for cancer patients through linking primary care and hospital records.Chris Carrigan, Senior Research Fellow in the School of Medicine - University of Leeds, will tell us about the Use My Data patient involvement group and lead a discussion about possible models for informed consent in sharing data. This discussion will inform the city’s approach to consent and we hope will be the start of an ongoing conversation with patients and citizens.
