27 February 2023: We’d like to speak to those who work in, or have responsibility for, patient data in the health and care sector in England at a regional or local level
27 February 2023
To inform the development of a new data service, we are conducting some research on how patient data is used. We’d like to speak to those who work in, or have responsibility for, patient data in the health and care sector in England at a regional or local level.
The service has the potential to securely identify groups (cohorts) of people with shared characteristics from national health data, to help ensure the right people can be targeted and offered the services and/or treatment they need.
The research is confidential and being conducted by an independent research company. To register your interest to take part please complete this short form.
