Available Datasets

Below is a list of the datasets available for linking; please use this page of the website when filling in your application. All of our datasets are currently for residents within the boundaries of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde only.

We operate a system whereby we class datasets by ‘Tiers’:

  • Tier 1 datasets are those which are generically/nationally collected datasets used in everyday health care (such as SCI Store and SMR). These are available to all approved projects where needed.

  • Tier 2 datasets are generated locally/regionally by services which start data collections to help advance their services and benefit their patients. We will endeavour to include the data representative/controller in any application approvals which request access to this data. We do this;
  1. Firstly as recognition to the service of the work which generates the dataset;
  2. Secondly because applications may conflict or may want to collaborate with research projects planned or ongoing by the service which generated the data and;
  3. Thirdly in recognition of the local knowledge of the data collected and its appropriateness to the project applications.

  • Tier 3 datasets are generated by research projects conducted within the NHSGGC Safe Haven and are currently not available for request.
