Data Use Register

Here you can find details of all research projects approved to use NHS patient data through INSIGHT.

INSIGHT’s Data Use Register contains summary information for successful Data Use Applications to INSIGHT where a contract between the NHS Data Controller and the lead research applicant has been fully completed and secure access to anonymised data has been granted. 


The Data Use Register provides an accessible record of how data is being used for research, by who and for what purpose, and offers a demonstration of the value and benefit of using health data.  The format of the information presented in the Data Use Register aligns to recommended standards published by the UK Health Data Research Alliance for safe and responsible access to data for research and innovation.
