The Nest

By Rosie MacPherson

Sean doesn’t need a TV remote any more, or a shopping list. His house takes care of it all for him. Sara, his daughter, is attached to her phone, but isn’t so willing to share the information that could save her life. In a world where information is constantly being exchanged, how much are you willing to share?

The Nest is an interactive drama exploring how and why people's attitudes towards the sharing of data, health data and patient records can differ and at times conflict. 

This work has been commissioned by the NIHR Greater Manchester Primary Care Patient Safety Translational Research Centre, which is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is a partnership between The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. 
This work has been supported by the Public Programmes Team at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
