Thames Valley and Surrey Secure Data Environment

In the Thames Valley and Surrey (TVS), we are working with patients and the public, alongside health and care staff to develop a local regional secure data environment (SDE) for planning and research  (for detail see get involved section). Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) is the host organisation for the Thames Valley and Surrey Secure Data Environment.

Our SDE will benefit our communities by:

  • Supporting research for new and improved diagnostic tools, and treatments
  • helping the NHS plan better service
  • making sure that everyone can see how local patient data is being used and what impact it has.

We are committed to continue to work with our Community of Practice (see get Involved) to ensure transparency is achieved in our work.
