Joined up Leeds – talking about your information

Joined up Leeds2

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 1st -14th 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

To find out more or to arrange holding a conversation event, contact Fiona on 0113 238 0157 or email

    In our research we’ve found a wide range of opinions on this subject. Our conclusions are that there isn’t and shouldnt be a one size fits all approach, individuals should be able to determine their own preferences, one persons definition of privacy is very different to the next. Also consider that our attitudes to use if our data will change over time, this type of consultation needs to be considered as ‘always on’ and managed at an individual level. Organisations like are seeking to provide this service for the public and institutions such as our health service providers.
