Data legislation and information governance

This section pulls together guidance and legislation on the use of personal data in health research.

The pages include links to external sites, reference documents and explanatory text; many also provide links to other areas of the site, where related information can be found.

We have created these to give you extra detail on key themes, and many of them can be reached from more than one page in the site.

We have also made them searchable, have created a search category of Resources, and have grouped them together on this page for ease of access.
