About this Event

Are you aware of what Public Health England (PHE) can offer your researchers and/or health professionals?

As a sponsor, are you confident in your abilities to support researchers who need access to healthcare data?

Do you know of the tools and guidance that PHE can give both sponsors and researchers?

As a sponsor are you certain of the legal requirements around secondary use of data?

If you want to know more about any of these, join one of the free webinars hosted by the PHE Office for Data Release (ODR) where the team will talk through available data, the application process, compliance with legal, ethical and research governance, and how PHE can help promote the success of your research.

Data access from Public Health England

Public Health England (PHE) collects, collates and uses data on individuals, their health and wellbeing, and their interactions with the NHS, as well as data on the wider social, economic and environmental determinants that affect health outcomes. These data are used to enhance health care experiences for individuals, expand knowledge about disease and appropriate treatments and to strengthen understanding about the effectiveness and efficiency of our healthcare system.

Accessing these data to generate new insights can have regulatory and governance challenges , which can be bewildering to data scientists. This webinar will provide practical guidance to those who support the setup and delivery of research or service improvement projects, and aims develop a greater awareness of how projects could be complemented by accessing PHE data, the processes by which this is made possible and establish ways of working between PHE and Sponsors.

After completing this webinar you should be able:

  • To identify the data which are in the custodianship of Public Health England and how your researchers and/or health professionals can submit an application to access these data for secondary purposes
  • To summarise the steps involved in applying to access PHE data and interactions with other approvals, such as NHS REC or HRA Approval.
  • To understand the role the ODR play facilitating access to data, while upholding the highest standards expected of us as a data custodian
  • To understand the ways you can support your researchers and/or health professionals to submit a successful application for ODR Approval.
  • To understand what support is available and how to access it.
  • To share best practice by combining knowledge and skills to optimum effect
  • To understand the mandatory evidence must be submitted to the ODR, depending on the secondary use, level of identifiability and whether any other organisation will process the data.
  • To describe initial steps in planning a research or service improvement project, and when to engage with Public Health England.
  • To gain a practical understanding of how researchers and others are currently using data sourced from Public Health England.

Audience: Research sponsors, Research and Development Offices, Research Governance, Information Governance Teams, Science Administrators, Clinical Trial Administrators , JRO.
