NHS Digital’s Trusted Research Environment (TRE) service for England provides approved researchers with access to essential linked, de-identified health data to quickly answer COVID-19 related research questions. The TRE service provides approved researchers from trusted organisations with timely and secure access to health and care data. Researchers are given access to their approved data (in accordance with their Data Sharing Agreements), enabling them to collaborate, link data, share code and results within the same research projects.

NHS Digital’s new Secure Data Environment (SDE) service, initially available to a small group of users, will move into public beta in October 2022. This new SDE will be an end-to-end service for data research and will become the default way to access all health and social care data held by NHS Digital.
