<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Summary</h2>

We utilise population-based datasets as a powerful tool to inform the clinical management of patients and their treatment outcomes. Pooling data maximises the use of data from other studies and allows statistical analyses that are often not possible in smaller individual studies.

<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Full description</h2>

<p>We use local, regional and national-level datasets in a variety of innovative approaches that generate evidence needed to inform NHS services on better patient management, so leading to improved outcomes.</p>
