Citizens, Your Health, Your Health Data, Genomics and the Future
On 24th June 2011, patients, clinicians and managers from Tameside & Glossop and further afield came together to discuss the importance of our health, our data, genomics and the future. Hosted by Manor House Patient Participation Group and Haughton Thornley Patient Participation Group in Glossop, the meeting was an opportunity for us to understand the issues in a relaxed atmosphere.

Questions and Answers

The following 2 interludes had been planned to be delivered on the day. But as time ran out, they were recorded at a later date with a small patient audience to discuss the conclusion to the day and how data and in particular health data can lead to sustaining the planet.

Please feel free to send emails to Dr Richard Fitton on richard.fitton1@btopenworld.com if you have any further questions.
