Datasets and tools

Data used by researchers will be de-identified – names, addresses, NHS numbers, specific dates – will be removed, unless there is explicit ethical and legal approval to do otherwise.

The NIHR HIC works with the information governance teams within each of the participating trusts to ensure that patient information is managed in accordance with NHS and Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidelines.

How to work with NIHR HIC centres and themes

If you are a researcher and are interested in working with NIHR HIC centres or themes, please contact the relevant centre using the contacts page. NIHR HIC datasets are not currently available to researchers outside of the NIHR HIC; however it may be possible to establish new collaborations.
