Data Security & Privacy

Partnering with patients and the public

From the seed of an idea, to establishing and growing the Hub, patients and members of the public have been involved in BREATHE every step of the way. This partnership is fundamental to improving our work and strengthening our impact.

We work closely with patients and the public to make sure health data is used transparently and only where research has the potential for clear public benefit.

The BREATHE Curiosity Group is our network for patients and members of the public. Their input helps help direct and guide our activity towards creating better outcomes for people with respiratory illnesses
