About the COVID-19 category

As the national institute for health data, find out how we are championing the use of health data to respond to COVID-19

Our strategy in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic is to mobilise talent and partnerships across the UK to:

  1. Co-ordinate and connect national data science driven research efforts related to COVID-19
  2. Accelerate access to UK-wide priority data relevant to COVID-19 for research
  3. Leverage the best of the UK’s health data science capability to address the wider impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting vulnerable groups that will be hardest hit

To ensure that the most promising research questions are supported, and to limit distraction of the NHS, we are using a process to prioritise research efforts and report these to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE).
