Collection Referral Service

The Collection Referral Service offers you a confidential way to refer data collections that you feel might benefit from further scrutiny.

Collections referred to the service will receive an objective evaluation, looking at quality, suitability and value to the health and social care system. Any issues or potential areas for improvement will be discussed with the requester of the data.

Our aim is to enable requesters of data to identify the most efficient way of collecting the data that they need to improve or ensure good health and care services, whilst minimising the burden that the data request might impose on providers of those services.

You can refer a data collection to us by completing the form below. Please provide as much information as you can to enable us to effectively understand any issues.

You should expect someone to contact you within two working days to confirm receipt of your referral and discuss what will happen next. We will not share you identify or contact details without your permission.

For further information or if you need help completing the form please contact
