How can health information improve lives in Northern Ireland?
We’ve all visited the GP at some point in our lives, whether it’s for a check-up, because we’re not feeling well, or we need to get that prescription updated again. Perhaps you’ve visited the hospital too? At each visit, your health information is collected and securely stored by the NHS, but what if researchers can access it to improve the lives of people in Northern Ireland?
