Matt Heys, Business Intelligence and Data Science Manager at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay talks about how data from GP practices and acute hospitals is being used in Morecambe Bay to help predict whether patients may be at risk of depression, anxiety or a serious mental illness that isn't yet known.
