The Ethics and Engagement Advisory Group
The Ethics and Engagement Advisory Group is chaired by Dr Graham Jackson, Chair of NHS Clinical Commissioners. It supports the work of the TVS Care Records Partnership by:
- Supporting transparency around the purpose of, and processes for data sharing to maintain public trust in the systems of care.
- Acting as a forum for discussion across the systems involved in the partnership to support coordination of action in involvement and engagement.
- Supporting and sharing best approaches to involvement and co-production with patients and the public, clinicians and practitioners.
- Promoting best communication methods, including consideration of the voice and needs of seldom heard communities.
- Advising on approaches to secondary use of data such as access to data – who, what and when.
Membership of the group is drawn from across the TVS area and comprises 50% members representing the population and 50% members representing health and care staff. This includes social care, primary and secondary care clinicians, local authority, junior staff, research, ethics, allied health professionals, information governance, Healthwatch and seldom heard groups of the population.
