About the HDF

What is available on the HDF?

The Health Data Finder for Research does not provide direct access to the actual health data. Once you have selected the data sets that you may find interesting, you will be provided with the contact details of the relevant data custodian experts to discuss your requirements further. The experts will advise you on applicable governance rules, discuss any constraints and limitations of the data sets, and guide you through the process to apply for access.

The Metadata Catalogue in the Health Data Finder for Research includes a list of data sets that could be useful for your research study, and further information about these data sets. You can start browsing this catalogue on the Data Sets page.
