NHS England is introducing an information service on behalf of the NHS called care.data. The service aims to use information from a patients’ medical record to improve the way that healthcare is delivered for all. A thorough process must be followed before any information can be shared and strict rules about how information is stored and used are followed.
Topics for the forthcoming Grand Round in September include:
18th September: A presentation by Dr A Heald
25th September: A presentation from Orthopaedics

Many symptoms of cancer are non-specific, which makes diagnosis difficult. Cancers in childhood are rare and there are also potential barriers to communication during consultations. These are just some of the problems in this field – this module will help you overcome them. It highlights the potential difficulties with diagnosing children and young people with osteosarcomas and brain tumours, outlines red flag symptoms, and suggests approaches to addressing potential barriers to communication. See the link below.
Also in this week’s edition are some modules on ENT disorders. They give an important update on a range of common dilemmas.
Steve Collman, our Outreach Librarian for the community will be visiting Eagle Bridge on 21 August. Whether you are staff or a student, working in clinical or non clinical areas, Steve is happy to meet with you to discuss how the library service might be of assistance.
This is an informal arrangement, enabling people to call in whenever its convenient and have a chat – no appointment needed! Although Steve is equally happy to arrange 1:1 or small group sessions on request.
It’s the perfect opportunity to discuss any queries you may have regarding literature searching, accessing online resources or sign up for Athens.
