The Data Access Request application form has been developed following a period of extensive consultation with the UK Health Data Research Alliance data custodians and HDR UK researchers. The form consolidates and categorises the common data access request questions using the Five Safe framework. It offers a shared framework for data custodians to align their data access request applications and help streamline applications for users.
This form is the result of a harmonisation process, following analysis of many custodians’ application forms (including all UK national Trusted Research Environments) and identification of a minimum common denominator across forms from all organisations. Streamlining data access across data custodian organisations and using a harmonised data access request form would it make it easier for both researchers and custodians to submit and respond to access request.
This form is currently used as part of the Innovation Gateway data access management system.
