BREATHE has partnered with Swansea University to use SAIL Databank as our primary Trusted Research Environment.
With over a decade of experience, SAIL Databank has established processes and procedures which ensure total anonymity at all times, whilst allowing research to proceed for the benefit of patients and the wider public.
SAIL Databank does not receive or handle identifiable data. Commonly recognised identifying details, such as name or contact details, are removed before datasets enter SAIL Databank and once anonymised they cannot be reconstructed.
Requests for access to data held within SAIL Databank are reviewed by an independent Information Governance Review Panel, including members of the public, to ensure that only trusted researchers with questions likely to result in patient benefit can work with the data. For any requests to access data through BREATHE, one of our patient representatives will sit as part of this panel.
