Brief Bio:
Chris Carrigan is a specialist in cancer data and information, but with a particular focus on patient involvement and patient power, based from the University of Leeds MRC Bioinformatics Centre.

Chris was a founding member of the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN), a partnership funded by a range of bodies, including the public sector and leading cancer charities, tasked with providing new insights and intelligence into cancer inequalities, diagnosis, care, outcomes and experience, putting patients at the heart of how their data is used.

In 2014 he was named as one of the Health Service Journals Top 50 Innovators in the NHS for his innovative and collaborative approach to patient empowerment, and also featured on BBC Radio 4's Networking Nation series, where the NCIN was highlighted as a leading example of how best a network can operate.

In June 2015 Chris began to build a movement of patients who wanted to develop a detailed understanding of "all things data". The movement, labelled by the patients as "use MY data", has developed a growing profile and increasing numbers of members and associates, and has made presentations at local, national and EU events.

In February 2017 Chris will chair the new Independent Group Advising on the Release of Data (IGARD), a group of lay members providing independent advice and oversight to NHS Digital.
