A key role of use MY data is to give a forum for patients, advocates and carers to have more of a voice in how data is used. These short video messages are from members, and are all freely available for reuse. All we would ask is that you reference use MY data members as the source. To the right you can also see a short video recorded for use MY data with thoughts from some of those attending the Britain Against Cancer event at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster.
