NWC CHC - Safe and Trustworthy Use of Data

NWC CHC delivered a range of specialist technical outputs for the programme across trustworthy data environments and information governance.

  • Rolled out a data safeguarding implementation plan, with the CHC Hub, with approval from NHS Digital.

  • Worked with our patient Senate to draft privacy agreements which were shared publicly.

  • All researchers were required to pass MRC and NHS IG training. 

  • AIMES, an industry partner, has been named as the first data centre in Europe to be awarded with the new Data Centre Alliance certification. The AIMES research environment is recognised as highly secure with ISO27001 certification, accreditation as an NHS aggregator and externally audited as compliant with the UK Cyber Essentials scheme.

  • Processes for routinely managing data quality and anonymising data have been developed with the local Data Services for Commissioners Regional Offices (DSCRO).
