The Glasgow Safe Haven has worked on hundreds of innovative, data-driven research projects since it was created over nearly a decade.
Ranging from large-scale partnerships between NHS, academia and industry partners to supporting students at the earliest stage of their research career, our NHS datasets foster better care for patients in Glasgow and beyond.
Our data analysts support rapid-turnaround feasibility studies interrogating our broad range of NHS data sources.
Through our delegated ethics approval routes, anonymisation methods, and secure analytics platform provided in partnership with the Robertson Centre for Biostatistics, the Safe Haven provides a trusted research environment to let researchers link their datasets to the health histories of NHS GGC patient populations.
If you have questions about our data services, see the Glasgow Safe Haven FAQ.
Safe Haven data staff facilitate the import, description and secure re-use of novel NHS and research datasets from a wide-range of sources.
Datasets are tiered according to re-use permissions, with Tier 1 for general research use, Tier 2 for research use only with specific permissions from data owners, and Tier 3 for restricted or no re-use.
Our governance and security standards create a safe method to create new value from existing data sources.
