TPP works with UK Biobank for COVID-19 research
TPP is delighted to announce that it is working with UK Biobank to make GP data available for scientists takling the Covid-19 pandemic. TPP has already supplied primary care data and this will be refreshed throughout the Covid-19 crisis. This will then be linked to Hospital Episodes (HES) and intensive care (ICNARC) data for the 500,000 participants.
The cohort is made up of UK participants and this healthcare data will be used alongside genetic and lifestyle information already available to UK Biobank.
