This project brings together researchers at the University of Cambridge, HealthWatch organisations and Public Health England (PHE) to explore how local communities are involved in the drive to establish linked health and care records. It aims to develop shared meaning and guide engagement with the use of health and care data for research – essential building blocks for a vibrant and inclusive infrastructure for applied health and care research.
The project will involve focus group discussions across all PiF areas as well as one on one phone interviews.
