London Secure Data Environment (SDE)
London was successful in winning funding from the NHS England Data for Research and Development Programme to develop a NHS owned Secure Data Environment for London.
Once available, the SDE will provide access to approved users only (such as researchers and analysts) to NHS health and social care data, while maintaining data security and patient confidentiality, and ensuring connectivity to local communities and NHS care teams. This means they will be able access and analyse data without it leaving the environment.
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.
