NHS data linkage – NHS Central Register and Cancer Register

NDNS RP participants have been asked to provide consent for their research data to be linked to the National Health Service Central Register and the National Cancer Registry. Mechanisms for data linkage are complex, subject to external governance, and are currently being established. In the future, it is intended that NHS data linkage for NDNS RP participants who have consented to be linked to the NHS Central Register and Cancer Register will be possible. If you are interested in this opportunity please contact ndns.bioresource@phe.gov.uk.

Under the current contract data linkage for NDNS RP participants is managed and if feasible will be enabled via NatCen.
