Health Data Research at CUH

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a research hospital. This means that it actively supports research that improves health, care and services.

Research using de-identified data that is routinely collected about patients and staff at the Trust is an important part of this research, and helps us to improve the care that we provide.

To protect patient and staff confidentiality, names, contact details and unique numbers linked to a person (such as NHS number and hospital numbers) are removed from the data analysed by researchers.

All research must have the correct ethical oversight and regulatory approvals.
