Duchenne UK attended the launch of the Empower: Data4Health campaign. The campaign is calling for a central database of health records that empowers patients, doctors and researchers, and helps to deliver better treatment across the country. Life Science Minister George Freeman said he looked forward to being hounded by Empower: Data4Health, who’s mission it is to make this happen, because a modernised, digitised health system is the only way forward.
Graham Silk, leukaemia survivor and co-founder of Empower: Data4Health knows this first hand:
I was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2001, and I’m still here today because of medical research facilitated by the patient data of the leukaemia community...I want everyone to benefit in the way I have.
