If you are looking for Olympics-mayhem avoidance strategies then what better than taking the opportunity to share your views on Information Governance.
My good colleagues at INVOLVE have reminded me to remind you, that Caldicott’s remaining public workshops will take place on 8 August in Birmingham and on 22 August in Oxford. The one in Leeds today was oversubscribed I believe. The sessions are designed to capture the views of patients, service users and carers. The 3 key areas they would like to explore are:
1. Your experience of how appropriately your information has been shared and not shared, 2. Your expectations for access to and control of your health and social care information (including carers’ access and control), 3. How you think your information should be used and shared in the future (e.g. for your care, for research etc)
Further information is available on the website.
