Welcome to Future Debates, a series of public events supported by the British Science Association.

Future Debates events are part of the British Science Association's work to make science a fundamental part of British society and culture. We want to empower many more people – not just scientists – to constructively engage in debates over the applications and implications of science in their lives, their local economy and the UK’s future.

Doors open from 4.30PM, with the debate to run from 4.45pm until 5.45pm. This event is suitable for 14+ and the option of continued discussion afterwards in The Firman Hall is open to all. The two questions that will be debated are: 1 Should healthcare providers have access to our data and 2) Who should be in charge of protecting our data
