The day started with a warm welcome from David Bower, Chair of the HDI Board and Jem Rashbass, HDI’s Medical Director.
To close the day, we heard about the work to develop and simulate new datasets. Ruth Swann, from the Cancer Research UK and Public Health England partnership, spoke about her work analysing data from the most recent National Cancer Diagnosis Audit to find ways to improve the pathways to diagnosis for cancer patients. Tim Gentry and Noo Rashbass shared recent investigations into displaying data from a range of sources and the relative geo-positioning of NHS hospital trusts. And finally, plans were announced for the Simulacrum to incorporate synthetic radiotherapy treatment and molecular therapy data.
Many thanks to everyone for their contributions towards what turned out to be a very enjoyable day!
