The different organisations and departments that make up the NHS and the council in Leeds hold various bits of information about us. At the moment that information isn’t together in one place. This means the people who look after our health and wellbeing often don’t get the full picture of who we are and how they can help us.
From 1 -14 February there will be a big conversation in Leeds about how people would like health and social care services to use their information.
During the conversation, different examples of information sharing will be discussed and questions asked such as: Who can see information about us? What is it used for? How could it be used to help us to be healthier? How should our privacy be protected?
It is an opportunity to consider how your information is used and might be shared. Your views will help shape an information sharing strategy for Leeds.
People can join the ‘big conversation’ by attending one of a range of events listed below, host their own event, fill in a survey, tweet using #joinedupleeds or post on the Joined Up Leeds Facebook page
