Medical Confidentiality and Privacy: Past, Present and Future, 25th-26th April 2014

Date: 25th – 26th April 2014

Location: University of Glasgow


This  2-day event will encourage participants, from around the UK and abroad, to consider a range of perspectives on medical confidentiality and privacy. It has been designed to enhance understanding of contemporary areas of concern and debate, and of how relevant issues have evolved over time and within different socio-legal contexts. In doing so, the symposium is intended to facilitate positive dialogue, and encourage future collaboration, between experts from different professional backgrounds and academic disciplines.

A full programme will be available online shortly.

Key speakers on Day 1 include: Prof. George Annas (Boston University), Prof. Graeme Laurie (University of Edinburgh), Prof. Jean McHale (University of Birmingham),  Dr Emma Cave, (Durham University) , Dr Michael Soljak (Imperial College, London), Dr Janet Murray (Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Caldicott Guardian) and Dr Angus Ferguson (University of Glasgow)*
