Request Summary: Requests to access the Trust's data for research and commercial reasons

Request Category: Companies

 
Question Number 1:
Please note that the below questions pertain to requests to use or access data (data owned or jointly owned by the Trust) for commercial or research purposes.

Please provide the number of requests made in each of the financial years 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18
 
Answer To Question 1:
For research - there is a formal, national process for setting up research projects in the NHS. We do not get requests for data. Rather, there is a collaborative process, with the national lead organisation talking to NHS sites to identify sites that are interested in hosting the research. In 15/16, 16/17, 17/18 the research department did not have any requests to use or access data for research. This is because this is not the way research projects are set up in the NHS. The Trust is a formal partner in many national research projects, and these projects have been set up in the way described on the NIHR https://www.nihr.ac.uk/partnering-with-us/ and HRA websites - https://www.hra.nhs.uk . These processes (e.g. the requirement for NHS Research Ethics Committee approval) are widely known about.

The Trust does not share information for commercial purposes
