Our medicines data work with NHS Digital

Applications for Medicines dispensed in Primary Care (NHSBSA data) are now open via Data Access Request Service (DARS). The initial version of the data is in an identifiable format with the NHS number visible which means only those with a consented cohort of patients can apply for access. A pseudonymised version, which includes demographic information, will be available by the end of September.

The data has already been used to support the coronavirus (COVID-19) response within NHS Digital, including work on vaccine trials and the shielded patients list. 

You should contact NHS Digital on 0300 303 5678 or enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk to discuss your requirements before beginning the application process.
