Research Database

Every time you come to the STH Respiratory Department we make a record of your visit. This includes details of all the observations we make, test results, scans, and treatments.

We would like to use the information that we collect about all of our patients to do research using a Research Database. All identifiable details such as name and address will be removed before data is used in research. This means nobody from outside the hospital care team can identify any patient from the research data.

The database will help us do research to improve services for people with respiratory and lung conditions.

If you do not want your clinical data to be used in this way, please contact us at: lungresearch@sth.nhs.uk or phone (0114) 226 5424.

Address: Respiratory Research Coordinator, c/o Clinical Research & Innovation Office, D Floor, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, S10 2JF.

This database received approval by the Sheffield NHS Research Ethics Committee in December 2018. A list of research projects to date that have used this research database can be viewed HERE.
