The Grampian Data Safe Haven

Data Safe Haven (DaSH) logo

The Grampian Data Safe Haven (DaSH) is a secure, virtual healthcare data analysis and storage centre established by the University of Aberdeen and NHS Grampian to allow for the secure processing and linking of health data for the Grampian and Scottish population when it is not practicable to obtain consent from individual patients.

DaSH technology ensures unconsented healthcare, social data and other types of sensitive data are accessible for research and clinical purposes whilst protecting individuals’ privacy. Our ethos is built on working with clinicians, researchers and industry partners to improve health and social care by providing a safe and secure environment and enabling cutting-edge research.
