Health Data Research UK is the national institute for health data science. Our mission is to unite the UK’s health data to enable discoveries that improve people’s lives. By working in partnership and providing safe and secure access to rich health data, we aim to better understand diseases and discover new ways to prevent, treat and cure them.

Our mission can only be achieved if the public has trust and confidence in the use of health data for research and innovation.

What do the Public Advisory Board do?

Our Public Advisory Board was established in January 2019 to guide Health Data Research UK in ensuring that our work is driven by delivering benefits to patients and the public. For example, with our Digital Innovation Hub programme, they’ve provided valuable input into the Hub specifications, the selection of the Hubs and also influenced the direction of the programme.
