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 NHSGGC or derived datasets created by combining data from several sources.

We provide Data Packages page for each dataset listed. Scroll down here to view the available datasets under their appropriate tiered structure. Some datasets have links to metadata files for more information on what is available:
