Funding awarded to London organisations to improve use of data for research
A London-wide application to create a Secure Data Environment (SDE) which will use data to improve research capabilities in the capital and health outcomes for Londoners is one step closer to happening.
NHS England announced that the pan-London expression of interest has been accepted for its Wave 1 programme. This means a business case will now start to be produced which will detail the resources and timescales required to make the SDE happen.
Both the expression of interest and the business plan are supported by every NHS integrated care system in London.
“This funding represents a significant step forward for the programme as we move from concept to creation, delivering on our strategic ambitions to power research with data to save lives.”Dr Claire Bloomfield, Deputy Director for Data and Research and Development at NHSE’s Transformation Directorate
The funding will also allow us to continue our public engagement and involvement work, building on the expectations from Londoners about how their data is used.
