We have a responsibility to make sure that all data we hold and share is handled lawfully with patient confidentiality as a priority. Because of this, access to some kinds of data is restricted.
Request data access
The Data Services for Commissioners safely provides anonymised patient-level data to commissioners for use in healthcare planning and payment within the NHS.
Our service allows Commissioners and Providers to use data for secondary uses such as planning, commissioning and calculating payments.
The Data Access Request Service (DARS) can offer clinicians, researchers and commissioners the data required to help improve NHS services. We handle applications, process data and provide access to specific sets of data when requests are approved.
