Using data from NHS information systems to support research and development

The Unit has considerable expertise in the use of data from routine NHS information systems to support research and development. This includes advanced statistical and computational methods for data analysis.

We support research through the West London Research Design Service.

We host primary care and public health postgraduate training with a regular throughput of F2 doctors, Academic Clinical Fellows, NIHR  Clinical Lecturers and Specialist Trainees in Primary Care and Public Health.
