Linking Data for Future Research Discoveries
A new collaboration for public benefit
Six National Core Studies have been set up for COVID-19 research, funded by the UK Government. These studies aim to answer pressing COVID-19 questions through accelerating progress in establishing a pioneering health data and research infrastructure for the future. The UK LLC is operated by the University of Bristol and the University of Edinburgh.
It is embedded within the COVID-19 Longitudinal Health and Wellbeing National Core Study.
This work uses data provided by patients and collected through longitudinal studies, or as part of their care and support.
Bringing data together for research
Researchers based within the UK can apply to access datasets held within the UK LLC.
Patient & Public involvement
Involving people with relevant lived experience in research can bring about many benefits.
