GM CHC have contributed to the development of public trust in the use of sharing health data for research purposes.
Working closely with the GM CHC Public Forum, which consists of members of the public recruited from across the ten local authority areas locally, GM CHC have contributed to the development of public trust in the use of sharing health data for research purposes.
These have included:
Invigorated public debate about primary and secondary uses of health and care data - achieved via the CHC website, deliberative workshops, community events and science festivals.
Stimulated learning and reflection about secondary use of health and care data and data linkage using public engagement materials and activities such as games, voting booths and leaflets at community events and science festivals.
Influenced and informed public opinion about the sharing of health data beyond public institutions highlighting what organisations need to demonstrate in order to maximise public trustworthiness.
