The aim of the research is to build and evaluate a prototype privacy tool and user interface for eliciting people's preferences/consent to provide access to their health and social care records.

A Privacy Preferences Tool for Patients

The privacy tool will provide appropriate information, options and reassurances to patients and health care professionals. Research results in this area will be widely applicable to health and social care systems. This project is being undertaken in collaboration with the School of Health, Connected Health Cities, and Newcastle University. It is funded by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
