Datasets

The Lothian Researcher Safe Haven (LRSH) hosts a range of datasets used to support health-related research, these include extracts of NHS Scotland national databases (e.g. births, deaths, community prescribing, SMR) and other clinical systems (e.g. TRAKCare) and comprise routinely collected data on individuals accessing the relevant services within NHS Lothian. (Please see document below)

LRSH also hosts bespoke health or clinical collections, study data and registers. LRSH provides support for researchers seeking to archive and facilitate onward sharing, through controlled access, of their study data.

Core datasets required for a range of projects are routinely held by LRSH within dedicated secure servers within NHS Lothian with other datasets sought as and when required for specific projects.
