Our Future Health is collecting a cohort (with consent to recall) of 5 million individuals in the UK, 1 in 10 of the adult population. It will be the biggest multi-ethnic cohort in the world and participants will benefit from early insights to disease susceptibility through polygenic risk scores. Additionally, the resource will enable researchers to develop new treatments through linked NHS records and facilitate clinical trials.

The aim of the meeting is to inform the clinical community and participants of this major UK NHS initiative. Participants will be provided with the background that leads millions of individuals to spend many years of their life in poor health, suffering from common diseases such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Detection and treatment of diseases only tends to occur when patients start showing symptoms. The goal of Our Future Health is to enable and revolutionise the way we fight disease by collecting information from millions of volunteers across the UK.

  • Gain an understanding of what Our Future Health is
  • Learn and understand how the data will be used
  • Gain an understanding of how the data will be collected, collated and delivered to participants
