Who will use the information?

The matched survey and administrative information will be used for research purposes only and under restricted access conditions via the UK Data Service (UKDS) or the Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN). This information will never contain your name, address, NHS and NI number, or date of birth.

Professional researchers who want to use the matched information must be registered with the UKDS or ADRN.  To access matched information which contains more detailed information, researchers must also apply to an independent committee. Researchers will only be given permission to use the information if they present a strong scientific case for the research and explain its wider value to society.
