Health data


Utilising health data to investigate causes of disease and health outcomes is common practice in research. As such, ensuring patient confidentiality and security is critical to safeguarding the rights of participants and necessary for the ethical and legal use of these data. 

Staff and students are advised to store, secure and share health, NHS and other similar data in a way which minimises risk to these data and promotes good research practice.
