On Wednesday 26 May, the Discover-NOW team showcased their achievements over the last 18 months through a series of lightening talks from academia, healthcare and pharma. Attendees were given unique insights into their nationally endorsed approach to Public Patient Involvement and Engagement, including insights from a citizen representative who has helped to steer their public deliberations. It was also an opportunity to learn about how to work with Discover-NOW as they revolutionise the way health data is used for research into treating and preventing disease.
